GREENFIELD — The Adair County Historical Society will host its fifth annual Heritage Tractor Ride June 28.

This year’s “Steady as a Rock” tour will start with a breakfast at the Heritage Center on the west edge of Greenfield beginning at 8 a.m.

Tractors will depart at 9 a.m. and head to the Freedom Rock for their first break.

From there, they will travel to Adair for lunch at Adair City Park. Sights along the way will include a road-side tour of a Schildberg’s Quarry and historic Rosserdale.

Lunch of burgers and brats will be available in Adair for riders and the public by the Adair Lion’s Club at the park’s Snack Shack.

Folks are encouraged to join the riders on the noon break to view the tractors and support the Lions.

The return trip will feature a stop at Slayton’s Rock south of Casey.

Riders can register in advance by picking up a form at various locations in the community, or they can register the morning of the ride.

Registration fee is $10 and includes breakfast.
