Get steamed up and see 34,000 pounds of steel makes its way into the Heidrick Ag History Center at the launching of the museum’s Second Saturday Educational Series on Oct. 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The center is at 1962 Hays Lane in Woodland.

The Best 110-horsepower steam traction engine is on loan from Joe Heidrick Jr. and will be on view at the museum for six months. Participating in a discussion at noon are Joe Heidrick, Tim Heidrick, Jess Gilbertson and Ed Claessen, who will discuss the mechanical innovations of Daniel Best and the machine’s impact on agriculture at the turn of the century.

Also part of the series is the Scarecrow Expo, where members of the community, either individuals or groups, are invited to create scarecrows and submit them for display in the museum throughout October. The scarecrows will be on view through the museum’s Halloween fundraiser, the Pumpkin Smash Bash, on Oct. 27. To enter the Scarecrow Expo, email membership@aghistory.org.

Upcoming Second Saturday events are on Nov. 10 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (learn what horsepower means as we examine the contribution horses made in agriculture) and Dec. 8 from 1 to 3 p.m. (truck and tractor photos with Santa)

Second Saturday admission is $10 general, $7 for museum members and $5 for children. Pumpkin Smash Bash tickets are $35 general or $30 for member members, available online at aghistory.org or at the door.
