Threshing Machine,1892

Tom Torpey was one of the first farmers in the area to purchase one of these threshing machines in the late 19th century. These machines made it possible for many small farms to expand into huge operations,such as the Torpey outfit. This machine was steam-powered and still requied teams of horses and laborers.
