A little museum tucked away in the Branson area just happens to house some very fascinating historic machinery.
The Gaetz Tractor Museum is located on College of the Ozarks campus near the college dairy and is often overlooked. An interesting display of agricultural history, the museum is free to visitors and offers a nostalgic look into the evolution of farming equipment over the years.
The exhibit features a 1935 John Deere B, a Canadian 1919 Massey-Harris, an antique Marseilles-Adams cyclone feed power corn sheller and a 1930 Rumley 6A, among others.
Although small, the Gaetz Tractor Museum is a great stop in the Ozarks for anyone interested in history, antiques or agriculture. (Curiosity was my main reason for stopping by.)
The museum is free and open to the public during normal business hours, so stop by next time you’re in town and take some time to browse this impressive collection!
