Huber Museum a place where Huber is King
If like Jane Aumann and I you like all things Huber, yu will enjoy a visit to the Huber Museum. We were there for a book signing for our children’s Farm Book about a Huber tractor and enjoyed the massive array of items at this museum and how well it is laid aout and all there is to see. “This is just a great little museum,” Jane said and I agreed.
The museum hosted an open house where antiqe autos stopped by and looked over the museum that is dedicated to the company started by Edward Huber. For those that don’t know, Edward Huber created the revolving hayrake and a myriad of other inventions over the years. The Huber Machinery Company eventually built tractors and went into the construction industry as well. The museum contains examples of Edward Huber’s steam and gasoline tractors, threshers and road-building equipment and more.
Perhaps one of the most exciting items in the museum is the wood revolving hay rake, Edward Huber’s first invention. One of the real wooden hayrakes sits in the entrance of the museum.
Open on Saturday afternoon the museum is located at 220 E. Fairground St., Marion, OH 43302. Call 740-387-9233 for details. Also check out the Marion Ohio visitors and Convention site on Facebook to see what’s happening in town at https://www.facebook.com/VisitMarionOhio !
