Found in the loft of an old cabin, this Dutch Colony plow was brought to Missouri in 1816. The Dutch Colony plow was a European design that predated the Old Colony plow. The Dutch Colony plow had a shorter tongue than the Old Colony plow, and the cutting knife or blade was placed near the front of the plow, while the Old Colony’s blade was positioned at the side of the share.
