Due to the COVID-19 Outbreak, the HCEA office and the National Construction Equipment Museum is closed to the public until further notice. We are taking phone calls between 9:00 and 4:30 Eastern, replying to e-mails, and receiving and processing mail, merchandise orders and information requests, but please be patient with delays.

At this time, we are still planning on holding our annual International Convention and Old Equipment Exposition August 28-30 near Concordia, Kansas. 

Updates will be posted here and to our social media pages. Thank you for your understanding, and be well. 

The National Construction Equipment Museum

 

In 1992, the HCEA rented a parcel of land near Bowling Green, Ohio for use as an equipment museum. Later designated the National Construction Equipment Museum, this facility was established to obtain, preserve and display for public viewing machines, exhibits and artifacts that represent the development and history of construction machinery from the 1800s to the present day. Its collection includes over ninety machines, dating from the late 1800s through the mid-1960s.

 

The Museum is divided into an indoor exhibit hall for restored machines and a fully-equipped restoration shop, in which volunteers restore machines in the museum’s collection to operating condition and original appearance. The volunteers, who come from all walks of life and share a common passion for dirt, grease, hard work and old iron, meet on Wednesday evenings and one Sunday a month; if you’re interested in participating in a work day or evening, contact Thomas Berry at tberry@hcea.net for a schedule.
