The Stanley Museum is a history Museum. Established in 1981, the Stanley Museum in Kingfield, Maine, is located in the beautiful Georgian-style Stanley School built in 1903. Kingfield is the birthplace of the Stanley’s — important to note because the steam car for which they’re most often remembered was built in Watertown, Massachusetts.
Visitors to the Stanley Museum are greeted and directed first to the car room exhibiting the steam cars, and a 20 hp Stanley engine, boiler and burner exhibit that demonstrates the power plant of the Stanley steam car. There is also a chain-driven Mason Regulator engine on exhibit, an engine used in the first Stanley cars and reportedly the original Whitney steam engine that started it all in the 1890s.
