US Tractor Company

February 26, 1919 Oshkosh Norhtwestern
Farm Implement News, December 25, 1919
Back in January, we discussed automobile manufacturing, something that happened only for a very short time in Menasha.  It came on the heels of the demise of the US Tractor Company in 1922-23.  Today, we read how the firm came to town, via Chicago, settling first at the old Woolen Mills offices on Tayco Street and later making its home on Sixth.  The ad above, is from that very first year the company moved to town.
