1930's Ag Museum

This private one-of-a kind collection spotlights a 45-piece John Deere collection of farm implements manufactured in the late 1920's through 1940.  Meticulously restored and showcased for learning of all ages.  Children are allowed to touch and learn about a wide variety of hand tools and make guesses as to what each item's function was on the farm.  The Museum also features an antique horse equipment collection and period farm house furnishing as well as butchering equipment and machinery depicting the plowing evolution.  The collection is housed on the northern edge of Quincy on a private farm, with tours provided by the owner and his son-in law, who are responsible for each piece's restoration.  The museum has adequate space for groups to hold a lunch or meeting on site.  Open year-round and daily by appointment.  The building is not heated, so make reservations according to the weather.  It truely is an experience for all ages, and located minutes from downtown Quincy.
