Check out Burford Tractor Club at:  http://burfordtractorclub.com/photos/photos.html    A group of old tractor enthusiasts from the Burford and surrounding area.  They hold parades, –be certain to check out their photos of tractors on parade in Paris.  For residents of Brant County, there are a few familiar names on the sides of the tractors.  The guys have also displayed their tractors at our museum.  We understand that the Tractor Club has temporarily moth-balled their website.  If the link doesn’t work, send an email to us, the museum, and we will pass your email on to them.

Are you looking for a drive on a Sunday afternoon?  Check out the Barn Quilt project.  From the Barn Quilt project website: Barn quilt trails use colourful, decorative murals based on quilt block designs as markers on barns or other agricultural buildings to signal historical points of interest. Travellers follow a printed map, available along the route and in local tourism offices or from the tour’s web site. They do not actually stop at the barns during the tour.”

Check out their website: http://www.barnquilttrails.ca/  We suggest that you print out a copy of your intended route at home, as the guide books are becoming scarce.  As well, new quilts are added around the counties, and will not be in the book.
