Gas & Diesel Tractors
Many of the earliest applications of the internal combustion engine were stationary power plants used in farming and industry. By the early 1900's horsepower began replacing horse power on the farm and in construction. The Museum hosts an extensive collection of kerosene, gasoline, and diesel tractors covering the era of early experimentation in mobile power through the hey-day of the mechanized family farm in the 1950's.
