Brief History

In 1982, Murray Burton, Evan Evans, Norm Richards, Ray Pearse and Duane Dunn met to discuss the hobby of collecting and restoring antique tractors and farm machinery. Later that year they formed the "Prairie Tractor and Engine Club". The first Threshing Show was held in Turin in 1983. The present site was purchased from Roelof Heinen in 1987, where the collections and village have grown steadily.
