The Agricultural History Project located in Watsonville, California collects and restores local antique tractors. The group is made up of members with officers to oversee and assist in direction of the project. It has over 350 members and currently thirty tractors ranging from 1920 through 1965. The tractors and implements are shown at special events and parades to create awareness and preserve the history of California agriculture. The tractors and implements provide a visual to the onlooker that a photo could never capture. The size and shape of today’s tractors compared to those manufactured at the turn of the century bear little comparison. Even the tractor featured in this article is dwarfed by some of the earlier steam powered models of days past.
