Antique Tractor and Friendship Quilt Show
On Saturday, July 18th from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the Jefferson County Historical Society will host both an Antique Tractor Show and Autographed Friendship Quilt Display and Program. The Jefferson County Antique Iron will bring a variety of antique tractors to show on the grounds of the Jefferson County Historical Village. Inside the Schweinfurth Museum, Karen Simmons will display her Autographed Friendship Quilts in the Prairie Historian Room. She will give a program about these quilts at 2:00 p.m. Autographed friendship quilts were a special way for family and friends to remember each other. The public is invited to bring quilts with them to show and tell. Come and bring the family to enjoy a day viewing tractors and quilts then take a tour of the Village.
Admission is free but donations are appreciated. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
