Edward L. Lowder Red Barn

Photo of tools on display in the Red Barn at Ag Heritage ParkWe are pleased to announce that the first antique tools and implements display has become a reality.  Housed in the Red Barn, hundreds of items have been placed on the walls for optimum viewing with a descriptive labeling systems to be put in place over the coming weeks.  In addition, an indexed master list of all items will be available.

These pieces of history have been collected over the decades and donated to the College of Agriculture and Ag Heritage Park by James W. (Bill) Johnson of Albertville, Alabama; Pyron Keener of Montgomery, Alabama; Tom Dodd and Family of Semmes, Alabama; George (Jack) Clegg Farms in Marvin, Alabama and Fred Glaze of Prattville, Alabama.  Each donor expressed the desire to have the displays open to all for information and educational purposes as we acknowledge our agarian history.

Our thanks to staff at Ag Land and Resource Management for their work through the winter months on this project.  Two Auburn Eagle Scouts also participated in this project, assisting with installation of the rough cut timber walls which provide an authentic backdrop for showcasing these collections.
