1728 13th St. Monroe, Wisconsin 53566

It was a special weekend- September 5, 6, and 7, 1986- when the
5th annual Pecatonica Valley Antique Days were held at the
Lafayette County Fairgrounds in Darlington, Wisconsin. Club members
had decided that the Silver King tractor would be the first tractor
featured at their show.  

A Ply mouth tractor, the forerunner of the Silver King, and
thirteen Silver Kings were displayed in the midst of banners and a
nice collection of literature pertaining to Silver Kings. As no two
tractors were identical, the display gave everyone who viewed it a
good insight into the capabilities and changes made in a tractor
that was fairly uncommon in this southern Wisconsin farming

Other attractions of the show included a large display of
tractors, vintage farm machinery, antique toys, household items and
of course, gas engines. What would a show be without them?

Excellent weather, antique displays and demonstrations using
machine or horse power along with good old hospitality in a
pleasant setting along a gently flowing river made this show
another success for everyone involved.
