Visitor Tips and News About Truman's Plow, Agricultural Hall of Fame
The museum exhibits the very walking plow pulled by mules that the former President used while farming in Grandview, Missouri prior to WWI. The well-preserved and shiny plow sits on an Astroturf-topped pedestal that doesn't quite impart its ability to bust sod. Rather it gives it a distinguished and refined look worthy of the World's Only American Presidential Plow.
This is one of the most unusual exhibits in a museum filled with many strange and odd things. Another fascinating exhibit at the museum is the barbed wire manufacturing machine.[Phil Pasquini, 09/08/2009]
Cathy Hunter, director, told us, "We have over 300 anvils."[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 07/05/2007]
