Beiler Auction Has Grown Over The Years

Content Tools

The eighteenth consecutive auction at the Elias Beiler farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, was held on February 26 and 27,1998. This year the auction drew 2,800 bidders, representing 23 states and Canada. Typically, the auction turns the fields of the Beiler farm into something of a mud bath, but this year, with the warmest weather ever, there was no mud reported! Thanks to A.K. Kissell, we have a partial listing of engines and tractors sold. The next auction will be held February 25 and 26, 1999.
