Corliss Steam Engine Demonstration
How It Works
The Henry Ford continues to build back from the pandemic and grow its workforce. Visitors may find longer wait times or encounter experiences that are temporarily closed. We apologize for these inconveniences and we thank you for your patience and flexibility at this time.
We also ask you to help us spread the word that WE ARE HIRING!
Our 1859 Corliss steam engine is the only engine built by the Corliss Steam Engine Company during inventor George Corliss’s lifetime to have survived. Generating 300 horsepower, it served more than 60 years as the central source of power for some dozen independent workshops in Providence. Learn how ingenuity was used to create an optimized power source. Watch it run!
