Ask the Curator: The Fordson Tractor, Agriculture’s Model T

September 18 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

$25

Come join Collections Registrar, Matt Andres, as he examines Ford’s agricultural vision. The Fordson tractor, manufactured by Henry Ford and Son, Inc., was the first lightweight, mass-produced tractor that was affordable to the average farmer. The first tractor was introduced in 1917 and was an instant hit. The tractor is powered by a 4 cylinder, 3 speed, 20 horsepower engine and was in production in the United States between 1917 and 1928. This program is free for Edison Ford members and included with admission for non-members.
