Craig’s Corner – March 2020

February 29th, 2020 was a special day. Not only was it a celebration of Leap Year but It was a special day at the George Schaaf Museum. GICG members who attended were guests of George and of Will County Thresherman’s for the day. It truly is a treat to see one of none’s restored to their glory. Imagine living in the early 20th Century seeing these giant Prairie tractors roaming the fields and threshing grain. George is well known for his ability to restore these giants. Many were on display for us to see but we were also able to see an Avery (I believe) in mid restoration. He and Bill do most of the restorations right there at the Museum. The machinery to restore these giants is almost as interesting as the machines themselves. I have posted some additional pictures of Facebook.
