First, we will take the new church bus to Mount Olive and enjoy a delicious lunch at Ribeye’s Steakhouse. Then we will travel down Highway 55 to the farm of M. F. McCullen, Jr where we will enjoy a special private tour of 4 rustic, vintage, sign-covered, antique-filled buildings behind his homeplace. The first building houses his 20-year-old miniature John Deere tractor collection. You will see the thousands of green and yellow tractors on shelves lining the walls.
McCullen renovated the second building from an old schoolhouse which now holds seed and feed and other items and has an antique Shell station sign outside. A Phillips 66 sign grabs your attention as you head to the third building, where a 1920’s refrigerator sits next to an antique Coca-Cola machine.
The final building is an old tobacco barn, but the outside shows off classic signs, covering every inch of the building. These buildings which are full of all kinds of antique farm machinery, tractor accessories, antique garden tools and gadgets and more.
We thank our good friend and past Senior Adult Ministries Team member, DeAnna McCullen, for setting up this tour on her dad’s family farm. This awesome collection is NOT open to the general public, so don’t miss this rare opportunity to visit!
