Great collection of vintage farm vehicles at the Agricultural Hall of Fame and Museum in Bonner Springs
Even if there wasn’t a museum, the field where the car show was held is interesting all by itself. Surrounding the large field are buildings that take you back to the late-1800s. Known as “Farm Town U.S.A.,” the area features a general store, a blacksmith shop with working blacksmiths, and even an old one-room schoolhouse that is run by a strict, prim school teacher. They also recreated a period farmhouse, and filled it with the actual furniture and personal items from a well-to-do farm family.
They also had a pretty original looking ’50 Plymouth sedan. This car looked like it had been sitting in the same place for a very long time. And even though I don’t normally get too excited about ’50 Plymouths, this one was a nice time capsule.
The Agricultural Hall of Fame and Museum is one of those places that you might not think about going to, but you’ll be glad you did when you do. I know I was surprised by how neat it was. Check it out if you get the chance.
In the meantime, take a look at the slideshow below, or click this link for a nicer version.
