Farm Trucks and Transport

May 19 @ 1:00 PM - May 20 @ 5:00 PM

1947 Maple Leaf, Creston Museum, Creston BC

1947 Maple Leaf flat-deck truck donated to the Creston Museum, Creston BC, by Lloyd Bell.

Trucks are pretty much the last thing that comes to mind when we think about farming, but they were everywhere. Faster and more road-worthy than tractors, able to go much longer distances than horses: trucks were, from a very early period in Creston Valley’s history, the number-one way of getting all the valley’s agricultural production to market.

Join us as we celebrate this often-overlooked aspect of local farming. The Creston Museum has two farm trucks of its own: a 1921 Model T one-ton, and a 1947 Maple Leaf three-ton. Both are in running condition and will be featured front-and-centre this weekend! We also have half-a-dozen antique farm tractors, and we’re working on rounding up other vintage farm vehicles. Watch this space for updates!

Saturday, May 19, 1:00 – 5:00
Sunday, May 20, 10:00 – 5:00

Admission by donation.
