Visitors to Delaware State Park’s newest attraction will see what life was like at the dawn of the automotive age. Auburn Heights Preserve features a furnished mansion completed in 1897 as well as the Marshall Steam Museum with the largest collection of operating steam cars in the world. The collection is owned and operated by the Friends of Auburn Heights Preserve.
The mansion, with its antique furnishings, and the museum, with steam cars and much more, are open to the public on select dates. Please check our program calendar for a complete schedule. Both are also available for tours by appointment. To schedule a tour, call (302) 239-5687. Tours will also be available during special events, such as Steamin’ Day.
Special thanks go to Tom and Ruth Marshall for their generous donation of Auburn Heights to Delaware State Parks.
Auburn Heights is part of The Delaware History Trail! The History Trail sign is located in the event parking lot across the street from the Auburn Heights mansion. Download your passport today and start discovering what made the First State great!
