Farm Heritage Days


The 13th annual Farm Heritage Days will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the American Farm Heritage Museum, near Greenville, southeast of the junction of Interstate 70 and Illinois Route 127.

Ollie Schaefer, museum representative, said Massey Harris and Massey Ferguson tractors will be featured at this year’s show. This is also the 100th anniversary of Cletrac, so several Cletrac machines will be onsite, some from as far away as the west coast.
