If you have a vintage computer (generally-speaking older than 1994) bring it, working or not. Anyone new to the hobby is welcome. We are happy to demonstrate the tips and tricks to vintage computing, software archiving, and hardware restoration. If you have a Commodore, Atari, Digital Equipment Corporation, IBM, Apple, Tandy, MITS, Ohio Scientific, Atari, IMSAI, Kaypro, GRiD…there is an endless list of manufacturers and we strive to support them all!
Bring your personal favorite to show it off or if you need help getting it running. All levels of experience welcome. If you plan to work it might help if you can bring a basic toolkit (screw drivers, wires/jumpers, volt meter, soldering iron, power strip, etc.).
Please check our contact page for special hours, off-site private events, shows, and presentations.

Did you know that our region, the Mid-Atlantic USA, is home to a rich history of computing and technology? From the ENIAC to the Commodore 64 there is a rich story to tell.

The 3rd Annual Kennett Classic
Saturday September 24th, 2022
LOCATION: This will be a “worldwide” event headquartered at the Kennett Classic museum with overflow at the Garage 105 S. Union St. (Across the street from Kennett Classic museum)
The plan is to host a vintage hardware networking uptime challenge. Get your telnet-enabled vintage computing hardware ready! Anyone worldwide with a vintage computer capable of making a telnet connection is welcome to participate. And, if you are in the Kennett Square area, you can assist managing and supporting the network that hosts the event.
We are looking for teams of vintage computer hardware hackers who wish to participate in the event by connecting to our network with vintage computer hardware. The goal for each team is to maintain an active connection for duration of the weekend. Levels of difficulty will be recognized. Your vintage hardware will be required to “check in” at regular intervals in order to score uptime points and to obtain information about prizes or recognition for your team.
We are also working to invite hardware / kit vendors so that we can set up a large kit building workshop and swap for anyone interested in building vintage hardware dongles.
Registration Coming Soon!
