Winsted, Connecticut: Tractor Climbing a Tree (Gone)

An old farm tractor was somehow attached halfway up the trunk of an unhappy-looking tree, as if plowing to the sky.

On the northbound side of Hwy 8/Colebrook River Rd, either four miles north of downtown Winsted, or four miles south of the Massachusetts state line.

Tractor Climbing a Tree

The tree fell down? The tractor is no longer in the tree.

Tractor in a tree.

Tractor Climbing a Tree

The Just Country Antique Shop has a lot of interesting things in the empty lot across the street from it. The most unusual is an old tractor which has been fastened to a tree to make it look like it is climbing it. There is also a large iron rooster for sale right near the main road. Other items in the lot are another old tractor and a car chassis.

If the store is closed when you stop by, there is a sign in the window telling you to honk your horn. The owner, who is very friendly, lives in the house to the left of the shop.
