Back in August 2021, we were approached by a volunteer with the Elliott Museum located in Stuart, Florida. This museum is dedicated to “All Things in Martin County” but includes the inventions of Mr. Elliott who was world-famous. Antique cars, bicycles, boats, models, etc., you name it and it’s there in this beautiful and large building located on Hutchinson Island.
This volunteer, Steve Carr, filled us in on the history of the Still which was made in Martin County in the 1920’s during Prohibition. Please read the Proclamation which is now permanently displayed on the wall in the museum next to the exhibit.
All County Sheet Metal was tasked with fabricating the metal pieces in the display. We took several copper parts (some missing) and did the research to find out what was missing. We then spent the next 2 months fabricating the tables, copper pipes, hoses, as well as coloring the new copper to look old like the “green” copper in the Mash tank.
The Museum was so happy with the result that last week they held an event with over 80 people attending just to introduce this special and historical exhibit. You will see Marques holding the sign in one of the pictures as well as smoke which is coming from the 2 fog machines we installed.
