Generations of Power: a good theme name to describe the tractors, equipment and even the people who gathered at the 7th Gathering of the Green in Davenport, Iowa.

March 14-17, 2012, marked the most recent Gathering, with John Deere enthusiasts who traveled from all parts of the U.S., Canada and places around the world to be a part of this special conference. Held at the RiverCenter in Davenport, the Gathering has become the foremost convention-style conference dedicated to antique John Deere tractors & equipment.

 This year’s theme focused on the 100th year anniversary of John Deere becoming a full-line company. The four sponsoring John Deere antique tractor clubs - Deer Valley Collectors, Illinois Valley, North Eastern Illinois and Northwest Illinois - joined forces with their time and talents to make this another memorable event. These volunteers set up beautiful displays throughout the RiverCenter that reflect the many aspects of the 100 year evolution of the modern John Deere Company from 1912-2012. There were re-created dealerships and factory displays from that time period along with a replica workshop.
