The reconstruction of a museum symbolizes the heritage of farming
Posted by Green Fun Store on 4/7/2011 to Farm Lifestyle
According to the Billings Gazette, many senior citizens have donated farm equipment that was handed down from previous generations, particularly those of the '50s and '60s. People from all over the state have come together during the reconstruction celebration, bringing their donated machines to help with the initial plowing.
As recovery from the 2007 recession continues, enough funds are being raised to add an extra library, research room, restrooms and a gift shop to accommodate larger groups of tourists and students.
Johne Deere is one of the main contributors to this museum, displaying functional bulldozers, plows and mowers. The museum board raised $2.3 million, and county commissioners have provided a million dollar grant for the cause.
This museum is something that all Big Horn citizens can be proud of, even decades down the road.
