From the Butterfield Advocate


(Our thanks to Marcia R. Paulson, Editor of Butterfield Advocate for permission to use write-up and pictures.)

The Butterfield Threshermen's Association (Butterfield, Minn.) held its third annual Steam and Gas Engine Show the weekend of Aug. 16-17, and around 20,000 people were on hand to enjoy this increasingly popular event.

Though only three years old, the show is one of the finest around; and the town folks (all 601 of them) and people from the surrounding area are working hard to turn it into a real classic.

At the Butterfield Show you will find that the emphasis in on perfection and activity. Everything has been beautifully restored and is in perfect running condition.
