What a magnificent tractor. This tractor is a replica of a tractor built and used by the Adrian Foundry Company started by Aaron Lentz in the late 1890s or early 1900s.

This particular tractor is a replica made by the late Jim Bellis of Butler, MO, a long time member of the WMAT&MA. He used only available photos of the real one. No other tractors like this exist that the WMAT&MA knows of.

The museum at Frontier Village is open every Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. until the end of August. Come and check it out, there is something for everyone to see and learn of Adrian area history.
