Our Story

The Great Northern Oliver Collectors club was founded under a large oak tree during the summer of 1997 as a local chapter of the National Hart-Parr Oliver Collectors Association. We are one of two Minnesota chapters, and primarily serve the southern region of the state. In 1998 our club began doing an Oliver calendar and continues to do so  with the ongoing support and enthusiasm of our members.

 If you would like to host a event in your area please contact us by sending a email to: greatnorthernoliver@gmail.com. Also, If you have an event where you would like to feature Oliver, Hart-Parr and White Tractors please send a email letting us know.

Albany Pioneer Days 2019

Thanks for the update Bryan Ebbenga!

The Albany Pioneer Days started out to be a mud-fest with 5 inches of rain the 3 days before the show.  Crowds were down on Friday but heavy on Saturday.  Case and Galloway gas engines were featured with over 100 Case tractors showing up and I counted at least 15 Galloway gas engines.   There were very few Oliver’s in attendance, I think many stayed home due to the rain and Oliver was featured last year with an excellent turn-out. All areas were filled with tractors, cars, trucks, many of the large prairie tractors were there. Only saw about 4 Oliver’s in the parade and got some pics of them, a 1950, RC 88 owned by Doug Stade, of Eden Valley, MN, and a 1955 Super 55 Diesel owed by Bob Loxtercamp.  I caught a f a young man washing the mud off his newly restored OC-3 crawler.   Many campers needed to be pulled out as well as cars in the parking lot. Albany has a great show, with three separate music venues, a saloon /restaurant, a blacksmith shop that does a demonstration of how an iron wagon rim is heated and slipped on a wooden spoked wheel.  If it is too hot it burns the wood and then it will slip later the rim, and if not hot enough the iron rim won't expand enough to go on the wooden wheel.   They have also expanded their construction equipment and have set up a huge machine that separates gravel into different sized stones or gravel mix, like 3/4 inch with fines or   1 1/2-inch rocks for building road beds. We also enjoyed the Wild West Show on Sunday, with skits put on in a saloon, with cowpokes and saloon girls, the sheriff and of course gun fights!   All in all, a great show that is centrally located in Minnesota and worth the trip.
