On Saturday, September 8, Milan, Illinois’ Jan Morrison was hit with nostalgia as she walked through the First Heritage Tractor Show in Moline, where several vintage John Deere tractors brought memories of her childhood flooding back.

According to the Quad-City Times, Morrison was just one of many John Deere enthusiasts who attended the event, where only tractors produced in or before 1970 were allowed to be displayed.

“I remember these because of my dad and my grandfather” she said as she wandered the ground with her husband, Don, sister, Phyllis Lang, and brother-in-law, Ray Lang, of Grinnell, Iowa. “You can take the girl off the farm, but you can’t take the farm out of the girl.”

Though John Deere, both the man and the company, are often associated with the American Midwest, the innovator moved out to this region from the Northeast section of the U.S.

Although his company was founded in Illinois, he got his start in the small town of Rutland, Vermont.

He only spent a year in Rutland, and it was after years of a meager education in the surrounding area that he was apprenticed to a blacksmith in Middlebury, Vermont, where he got his first taste of tools and agricultural equipment.
