North Dakota antique show has featured John Deere equipment

Posted by Green Fun Store on 8/30/2010
Old-time John Deere tractors may make an appearance again during this year's edition of a North Dakota festival.

According to the Devils Lake Journal, Stump Lake Village will host its 15th annual Threshing Bee starting on Sunday, September 5. The two-day event is hosted by the Nelson County Historical Society and will feature demonstrations of antique equipment, along with crafts.

"A steam-powered sawmill and authentic blacksmith will give demonstrations throughout the two days and tours of the village itself are available both days, as well," the newspaper said.

A parade will feature antique equipment. Last year saw the appearance of older John Deere models, the paper said.

Threshing events are popular in other states as well. For example, Illinois' Will County Threshermen's Association hosts an antique tractor, gas engine and car show every year. The festivities give people in the area the chance to connect with old equipment and get a sense of how things were done in the past.

Even companies like John Deere have made it a point to keep a connection with history. The company has a number of museums that feature some of its older equipment.ADNFCR-3425-ID-19933321-ADNFCR
