Forest Home Farms Historic Park  is fortunate to have one of the largest antique tractor collections in California with over 50 antique tractors from the 1920s through the 1950s! The Tractor Museum also contains multiple hit and miss engines that display the development of this technology and its impact on agriculture and society in the early 20th Century. Most of the tractors and hit and miss engines are still in working condition. Tractors are driven in local parades and used on site to help maintain the sheep pasture.   Engines and tractors are also on display and in use during large City events.

These engines still run thanks to the hard work of a dedicated group of volunteers who have maintained and rebuilt many of these antique engines from the ground up over the years.  Enjoy walking through some of the restorations by the links below.

The Caterpillar Twenty-two (CAT 22)
