Museum and Event Destinations
Roll On In
We are rolling out a new plan. While we open the East Wing of the Museum, we’ll be working on some new exhibits. New artifacts are arriving and you’ll see a new vision of rural communities unfold at the Museum, and its courtyard and gardens.
We’re expanding guided tours that highlight California agriculture and transportation, and the spirit of experimentation, cooperation, and entrepreneurship that helped fuel advances in mechanization and technology. Turn of the century innovation made California a leader in food production. As technological improvements emerged, obsolete vehicles and equipment became the seeds of private collections.
The Heidrick Ag History Center is a Museum dedicated to enhancing people’s understanding and appreciation of California’s rich cultural heritage through the presentation of the collection. The Museum’s core collection was established by Fred Heidrick Senior and consists of the rarest examples of tractors, harvesters, trucks, autos, horse drawn implements and other artifacts that elaborate on the California story. The Museum continues to grow through the generosity of California growers and collectors. As a result we are hosting more events that bring the collection to public view.
Roll on in to capture an expanded glimpse of the culture of agriculture and invite your guests.
