The Liberty Grove Historical Society is helping to preserve history by holding its annual Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Show this weekend. Show organizer Russell Smith says Ford is the featured brand for this year’s event. He expects about 60 exhibits including a couple of working hit and miss engines that were used on the farm when the windmills weren’t spinning.
Smith says they’ll also have a demonstration of a 1960’s cherry tree shaker that was one of the first developed in Sister Bay. In addition to the tractors, the historical society’s annual art and craft sale will also be going on. Both shows are open Saturday and Sunday and are held on the historical society grounds just south of Ellison Bay on Highway 42.
