Antique farm show held

RUTLEDGE – The inaugural Grainger County Antique Farm Show was held Friday, April 23 and Saturday, April 24. 

The event was organized by Darren and Julie Leonard and Steven and Erin Hodge and featured about 50 tractors. 

Among the displayed tractors was a 1946 Chevrolet tractor prototype. The prototype is the only tractor in the world made by Chevrolet. The tractor was made by Willie Nutter Jr. in 1946 from Chevrolet truck parts provided by the company. Kentucky residents Dale and Marilyn Hall found the tractor in a barn by chance and restored it to display during farm shows. 

Julie said nearly 300 guests attended the event Friday, April 23. However, rain storms caused several participants and vendors to cancel Saturday, April 24. 

Organizers expressed thanks to those who participated and visited during the event.
