Dreams Do Come True
Al Martinson and his 1916 1-1/2 HP Fuller & Johnson farm pump engine.
After holding our show at four different show grounds, we have finally found a permanent home. A lot of work was put into finding this ground, but it was well worth the effort. We now have lots of elbow room so we can space exhibits further apart.
Our hot, dry summer days finally gave way to a cool September weekend, which was just right for our show dates last year. We don't feature any particular engine or tractor, but from the looks of what was shown we had them all.
We took a count, and we had 120 flywheel engines and 60 tractors. Other exhibits consisted of two steam tractors, two working sawmills, one rope maker, one braid maker and one threshing machine. There was an assortment of 26 other pieces of machinery.
Our next show will be held Sept. 7-8, 2002, and we invite everyone to attend.
