Model T’s on the Farm
Come celebrate the car that put the world on wheels!
When the last generation of the Jones family lived at the historic Jones Homestead, the horse and buggy on the Stage Road was getting replaced by the Model T, sold by the Ford Motor Company from 1908 to 1927. Henry Ford’s earliest effort was to make a car that most people could actually buy. In fact, the Model T was so affordable that it quickly became popular and was a vehicle that a majority of Americans owned. This directly changed how rural Americans lived and farmed, connecting them with the rest of the country. Between 1913 and 1927, Ford produced more than 15 million Model T’s.
Model T Club President Warren Kinkaid will arrive at noon with over 50 Model T’s. Our Blacksmith Shoppe will be open. House tours, live music featuring 1830’s banjo player Bob Kilham, tractor rides, Barn Scavenger Hunt, and more. Bring your picnic lunch and don’t forget your camera. This is a one of a kind event to celebrate the universal car that put the world on wheels!
