The Last Homesteader’s Tractor

Nebraska Stories

Air Date: 03/22/2018

A 1940s tractor used by the last homesteader in Alaska in the 1970s is restored by volunteers at UNL before going to the Homestead National Monument for permanent display. We follow members of UNL’s tractor club as they refurbish the tractor and learn the story of the last homesteader.

Want to experience the tractor in even more detail? Explore it with our interactive model below. (We recommend viewing it full screen.)
