  • 1952 A 50 Mack Semi

Twenty years ago, he used to restore Harley motorcycles, but now Terry Grice enjoys steam engines. At the annual Franklin County Fair on Grandpa's Farm west of Hampton, Iowa, Grice hauls the engines around the grounds.

In addition to his steam engines, Grice has three threshers dating back to the early 1900s, and an original Case water wagon.

Grice farms with tractors even though he prefers the steam engine. Above, he is pictured with his 1952 A 50 Mack semi that he restored to haul his steam engines.

The Franklin County Fair will be held July 16-20 this year. It is a joint project of the Fair Board and the Franklin County Historical Society. For information call the fair office at 515-456-2049.
