Second Saturdays begin October 13th

The Heidrick Ag History Center is launching a new series of family oriented educational events this Fall. Our theme is Fall into the Heidrick, check out, and learn about agriculture via the collection at the museum from 11am to 1pm. There is a slight up charge on Second Saturday and you’ll hear from some local, regional, and national experts in the field of agriculture. Second Saturdays are an opportunity for you to see how our agricultural pioneers operated and understand their contributions to agricultural commerce today.

Beginning October 13th- Second Saturday- showcases the Best Steamer at noon.

On loan from the Joe Heidrick Family, the 110 HP beauty will be driven into the museum where it will be on view for six months. Special guests Joe Heidrick Jr., authors Ed & Sue Claessen, and steam engineer Jess Gilbertson will be on hand to discuss some of the facts surrounding the Steamer.

Part of the early morning festivities include a Scarecrow Expo. You are invited to come in and setup you scarecrow before October 9th. We encourage everyone to participate and display their scarecrows on tractors in creative ways. To enter and receive a list of rules and regulations, please email
