    One of the best ways to experience Auburn Heights and the Marshall Steam Museum is to visit us during our monthly Steamin’ Days! Climb into an antique automobile, board one of our trains, and experience what it was like to travel at the turn of the 20th century. For an additional fee, tour the magnificent 1897 mansion that was home to three generations of the Marshall family.
