Tractor collection pulls in visitors as part of annual Country Holiday Home Tour

PATASKALA -- West Licking Historical Society's annual Country Holiday Home Tour always offers a nod to the past, thanks to the inclusion of historic buildings and homes.

This year's event is no different, save for the fact an antique tractor collection -- and not a venerable facade -- will stand front and center at one of the eight stops.

Local farmer Howard Emswiler, 72, owns more than 50 antique tractors. The list includes everything from old John Deeres to restored vintage models from Allis-Chalmers, Ford and Silver King.

The column a few weeks ago brought several responses about the fun experiences folks have had while towing or being towed on tractors. Here are two (somewhat edited for space) that I enjoyed.

Tractor History

TRACTOR HISTORY
At first glance, the International Harvester logo plastered on a sign on State Road 44 pointing to a nearby museum is just a black-colored 'H' with a giant red dotted 'i' in the middle.

To farmers and anyone well familiar with the tractor model, they know the 'H' symbolizes the back of the wheels and axle of a tractor. And the lower part of the 'i,' the body of the tractor; and the dot of the 'i,' the driver's head.

Evolution of farming at HHD

The old-timers were hard at work plowing and picking on Tuesday at Husker Harvest Days.

At one of the largest farm shows in the world, with the latest technology in farm equipment, these old-timers were busy showing why their equipment was the talk of the farm community back in the day.

For example, Marcellus Wall of Aurora had his 1936 McCormick-Deering diesel tractor out working the fields on Tuesday, the opening day of the show.

A Farmer and his Tractor -- Farmall M brings back fond memories

A local veteran was treated to a blast from his past last Friday.
Milo Mundorff, 94, a resident of Illinois Veterans Home at La Salle, grew up farming near Sterling. During World War II, he served in the U.S. Army Air Corps, flying C-47s. When his time in the service ended, he returned to his family’s 76-acre farm.
“I went back to farming and later I was a rural mail carrier,” Mundorff said.
