John Deere Display At Peck’s

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Fulton County’s Fall Folk Fest is coming soon. To celebrate, Gary and Nancy Peck of 4117 Breezy Point Rd., McConnellsburg, will reopen their property to the public for their eighth annual John Deere display of 2-cylinder diesel and gas series tractors ranging from 1939-1960. This is one of the largest-known private collections of its kind – right here in Fulton County!

Gary and Nancy have been avid John Deere tractor collectors for more than 40 years – starting their collection with a Model A in the 1970s.

Thirty tractors will be displayed on the hill in front of their home. Gary is lovingly classified now as an old-timer so come on out and walk around with him to talk about these old antiques. You’ll find him in bib overalls and a pipe in hand.

Freshly restored this year is the Model 620. Last year, it was perched on their hill all rusty and original. This year it proudly sparkles with a fresh coat of yellow and green. Gary worked on it for several months, tearing it down to its original frame and rebuilding it piece by piece.

If you love antique John Deere tractors, long talks about “the way it used to be,” flea market goodies, and homemade food, follow the signs off of Route 522 onto Breezy Point Road near Knobsville. It is a little over a mile on the right – you will see their collection from the road. Cross the bridge between the John Deere green/yellow wagon wheels and enjoy. Restroom is on site.
