Default Bessemer Oil Field Engine Found in Original Engine House Needs Rescue

I have a Bessemer oil field engine that is currently located in the original engine house and has been untouched for more than fifty years. I would like to relocate the derrick, fulcrum, engine house and engine to a new location and resurrect the entire site and make it fully operational. I am looking for OFES members that would like to get involved in the project. The site is located near Morgantown and the new site will be on the same property. The purpose of the move is to restore the rig and preserve it for future generations. I would like to make the rig available to OFES members to enjoy after the move is complete.
