Johnson Antique Tractor Building

 

The Tractor Building was constructed in 2014 and houses beautifully restored tractors.  The experience of visiting the Tractor Building will be a nostalgic one for some, but definitely an educational one for all.  As visitors stroll past the CO-OP, Cockshutt, and Farmall tractors, they will learn how the early tractors were too large for some uses, and too small for other uses; how many farmers here in Barron County often owned a Farmall H for large tasks, and a Farmall A or B for their smaller work; how unique features related to hand breaks and steering made a difference; and advantages and disadvantages in various models.  On display also are the Farmers Union CO-OP E3s which were restored for Farm Technology Days held in Barron County.

No pets are allowed on the Museum grounds, with the exception of service animals.
