EDGE & TA National Show


| June/July 1990

9667 South Chicago Road, Oak Creek, WI 53154

This year's National Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association Meeting and Show is promising to be a very interesting, exciting event and Branch 10 members are busy gearing (belting?) up for the big weekend.

The show will be held the weekend of June 23 and 24 at the American Legion Park in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

This year's show will be in conjunction with the J. I. Case Heritage Foundation and will feature Case tractors and equipment. Because Oak Park is close to Racine, headquarters of Case International and longtime home of Jerome Increase Case, the Foundation considered it an excellent location.

Historical tours of Racine, Case plant sites, Mound Cemetery (J. I.'s burial place) and other interesting points of Case history are being arranged by the Foundation. An all day tour is planned for Friday, June 22nd before Saturday's show opening and a half day tour will be offered on Sunday.

Sauder Historical Farm and Craft Village of Archbold, Ohio is sending the 'No. 25' Case portable engine. This rare 1870 vintage engine is the oldest Case engine still operating, and will be brought to the show by Mahlon Detter.
