Photography by Noel Johnson
Clyde and Millie Schurman lived next to their Machine Shop on Lewis River Road (503) at Woodland, Washington. Over the years Clyde collected thousands of things including cars, steam engines, tractors, tractor seats, farm equipment and on and on. He even bought a steam locomotive and had a short track for it to run on in their back yard.
Once a year, Clyde and friends would hold a Steam-Up at which they would start up a lot of the equipment and have a picnic for anyone that wanted to attend. For pictures of the 2006 Steam-Up, click here.
Clyde Schurman married Mildred Elizabeth Christiansen on March 20, 1940. She preceded him in death in October 2005. Clyde died December 2006 at the age of 92. Survivors include two sons, Gerald Schurman and Roger Schurman; two daughters, Linda Wyttenberg and Janice Schurman; a brother, Paul Schurman; a sister, Florence Thompson; two grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
