Horne Creek Farm Rust and Dust Show

Event Description

Stover, Hercules, International Harvester, John Deere, and Fairbanks Morse are names evocative of truly great manufacturers of engines. At one point in time, they all made hit-and-miss engines, which were a type of four-stroke internal combustion engine controlled by a governor to operate at a set speed. Horne Creek’s volunteers and staff will have a variety of old hit-and-miss engines on display and in operation; ranging from ¾ horsepower to 12 horsepower. A variety of tractors, a Maytag washing machine, ice cream freezers, a wood saw, grist mill, and 49’Willis Jeep are just a few examples of old equipment which will be powered by these engines. No pets (other than service dogs) or alcohol are allowed. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
