Reel Mower Museum

I have a collection of over 150 reel type lawn mowers. The earliest is 1897. They are on display in my museum, five miles south of Penn Yan. There are over 20 different companies of manufacture. They are all in workable condition and some have unique options that were available. When people enter they say OMG!
