In 2021, the annual Heritage Hill event changes to the third weekend in June. The event will now be known as Heritage Days. The new Heritage Days promises to be a fun-filled weekend for the entire family. The activities provide entertainment for people of all ages and interests, including: a one-room school house, a restored prairie farm house, a 500 horse-power Fairbanks-Morse engine, a chapel, a blacksmith shop, seed cleaning and processing facility, tractor displays, gas engine displays, daily tractor parade, great food in the Threshers’ Kitchen, garden and large tractor pulls, and much more. You will see and experience things that are almost forgotten in today’s technologically advanced world. Previously the event was held the third weekend in August as an annual Threshing Show.
The tractor feature for the 2021 event is a Farmall M owned by Sam Ashling (pictured). We are hosting the Minnesota Chapter 15 International Harvester Collectors. Join us for a fun time June 18 & 19 at the show site 4 miles east of Montevideo, Minnesota on highway 7. There will be a tractor drive Thursday, June 17 at 3:30 pm, and everyone is invited to join us for that fun ride.
