  • Nice show and fairgrounds. The food was reasonably priced. Working demonstrations thought the day were very interesting and a nice chance to see the tractors work. There tractor pull was fun, but most of the tractors were modified or super modified. Very few original out-of-the-field stock tractors pulled. Overall very nice show.
  • An excellent amateur museum run by volunteer farmers, machinists, toolmakers and other expert enthusiasts of all things mechanical. Limited summer hours, open by appt. Big annual summer show.
