Tulare County Museum opens exhibit to showcase agricultural equipment, celebrate heritage of local ag communities

TULARE COUNTY — In an effort to honor the history of agriculture in the county, the Tulare County Museum has put a spotlight on restored agricultural equipment.

On Feb. 14, the Tulare County Museum announced the grand opening of its latest addition, a showcase of agricultural equipment that was meticulously restored by some of the county’s local schools. The event will take place on Feb. 22 at 3:30 p.m. at 27000 S. Mooney Blvd in Visalia.

The event will kick off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring key figures from the community, local government officials, and representatives from the Tulare County Museum and the Tulare County Historical Society.

According to an announcement from the museum, the new building represents a significant milestone for the Tulare County Museum and the Tulare County Historical Society in their mission to preserve and celebrate the agricultural heritage of the community. In the building, the restored equipment will be displayed along with additional agricultural equipment from the museum’s collection to illuminate the processes of farming.

During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, visitors will have the opportunity to take tours of the new building that will provide insight into the history of each piece and the process of bringing them back to their former glory. The Tulare County Museum will take time to express gratitude to the local schools, businesses and volunteers who played a crucial role in the project.

The museum is inviting the public, media representatives and supporters of local education and history to join in the occasion.

Through engaging exhibits, educational programs and community partnerships, the Tulare County Museum strives to inspire a deep appreciation for our agricultural heritage with this new display. For more information on the museum, visit tularecountymuseum.org.
