Historic tractor finds new home at museum

December 3, 2018

Tractor_pete laurence for websiteIf you were downtown last Thursday and thought you saw a flying tractor, you did.

The tractor is one of the historical displays in the newly constructed Clayton Museum gardens.

The tractor pictured is a steel wheeled version similar to those used on farms throughout the Clayton Valley in the early 1900s. It was being lifted by crane into the garden where it will be part of a permanent exhibit. The tractor is a key element in the ongoing tribute to the hearty families who settled in Clayton and worked the land.

The tractor is one of two purchased by the Clayton Business and Community Association and donated to the museum. A second tractor is stored at the quarry while the CBCA decides on another display location in town,.
