Time to do laundry again??? Try using this early 1900’s washing machine. This particular washing machine was made by the Michigan Washing Machine Company. This machine consists of a large wooden tub with a rotor mechanism inside, and is operated by pumping a hand lever on top.

My grandparents, Robert and Lula Greenwood, purchased this machine in the 1920’s and used it for many years, they then moved up to a MODERN washing machine powered by a Maytag motor. The Greenwood family loaned this washing machine for display at the museum at the WMAT&MA Frontier Village, Adrian, MO.

Come join us this spring to take a tour of the Museum at Frontier Village, you will see this washing machine and many more wonderful items from the past.
