Visitor Tips and News About Paquette's Historical Farmall Tractor Museum
If you are over in this part of Florida and you're bummed out that the Snark Missile in Wildwood is no longer there, check out this place. Did you ever see a red tractor driving around on a farm? It was a Farmall Tractor. This museum has a fully restored model of every Farmall Tractor made. They have duplicated a built-to-company-specs Farmall Dealership. I don't know anything about farming but I got a great education about the equipment they used from our guide, Bill. There are three large buildings with International Harvester-built things: refrigerators, combines, tractors, road graders, trucks, and even the "Devil Tractor." The sheer number of tractors is amazing. They have guided tours, and I would suggest you get there early and beat the crowds. You'll get a great tour.[Phrank Phester, 12/31/2012]
