Farm Trucks and Transport
May 19, 2018 @ 1:00 PM - May 20, 2018 @ 5:00 PM
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!
