The Olde Engine Works is currently celebrating its 24th year as an antique and collectibles co-op. We opened in April 1993 with only 14 dealers and we've grown steadily ever since. Today we are proud to have over 80 friendly dealers displaying a wide variety of unique items. Prices range from less than a dollar to many thousands, and our dealers are always on hand to answer questions and help you in any way possible. Our inventory changes every day since dealers are always bringing in different items and fortunately items are selling every day.

Our building has become a prime attraction in the minds of our customers. Prior to its present use, Olde Engine Works Market Place was a machine shop which began operating in 1903. In the early years they built large steam powered hoists that were used for bridge building, quarrying and many other heavy industry applications. During WWII, they built hoists that were used to load and unload the Liberty Ships.

After the war the principal operation developed into building winches for Shrimp Boats. These hoists are used to pull in the nets and you will find Stroudsburg Engine Works hoists on boats all over the world. For many years, if you built a shrimp boat, you put a Stroudsburg Hoist on it! Winch production ended in 1989 and the business continued as a machine shop until November 1992.
