According to The Republic, a new museum featuring antique John Deere tractors and memorabilia is opening this weekend in Fairmont, North Dakota. This facility, known as Charlie's Green Acres Museum will contain eight restored two-cylinder models that are more than 50 years old. The owner of the museum, Charlie Hardie, has personally operated the tractors on his farm. Although the machines have been in storage for more than 20 years, they look as good as new now that they've been restored.
Hardie hopes to attract tourists and tractor enthusiasts alike, as well as children who wish to learn more about John Deere history. To many farmers, learning about the past is the best way to come up with creative solutions during the present.
