Displays

The collection housed at the Pioneer Thresherman's Museum includes a number of antique agricultural vehicles and implements. Most of the larger pieces are displayed in the open air, whereas smaller artifacts, such as antique domestic pieces, are housed in the main museum building as well as other historic buildings on site.

Antique Tractor Collection

Come explore the era when the tractor replaced the horse as the puller of plows. The museum currently has an antique tractor display covering the years from 1909 to the 1950s.

Steam Engines

The age of steam power is represented with the vintage steam powered engines and agricultural machinery on site. Some of the artifacts on display are working models, and offer the curious visitor exciting demonstrations on how early farm equipment would have been used by pioneers. 

Historic Buildings

Various historic buildings can be explored throughout the Museum's seven-acre grounds, including a blacksmith shop with a working forge, a flour mill, and a pioneer cabin furnished with period artifacts. Some buildings, such as the United Church building, can be rented out for weddings
