Topic tags/keywords: hall and brown question resource

My wife’s old family place had the grandfathers old saw mill on the farm. It has since been torn down, but some of the old belt drives and the old saw stuff is still laying around. Is this worth anything and if so is anyone interested. I hate for it to just rust away. I actually saw it when it was all together in its old cedar pole barn. Very interesting looking, with lots of large Drive shafts and belts hanging on them, and lots of odd and end heavy equipment looking stuff.

Hall & Brown Wood Working Machine Co.
founded in 1877 by Gorham O. Hall and Charles Swing Brown.

As for the parts left… I’m sure they are worth something to someone… as Aj sez, might want to ask over at OWWM.
