Pedal tractors of all sizes await the start of the pedal pull for ages four through adult. Collections of toy farm machinery filled the Edith Neale Gallery in the museum. David Mohr displayed his dad's 1924 Model T that was rebuilt into a race car. Vintage autos lined Monroe Street in Fort Calhoun. The Van Der Hart Family's 1918 potato planter was a big hit. Little ones were fascinated with those huge tractor wheels. Some vintage tractors looked like new, while others were not yet restored. Members of the Fort Calhoun Enhancement Committee passed out free watermelon.
