Info needed about the history of Massey-Harris in Batavia
The farm equipment of Massey-Harris, which ran a factory in Batavia for five decades, will be honored at the 51st Annual WNY Steam Show in Alexander next September and organizers are looking for information, photos and artifacts that help shed light on the work done at the Massey-Harris factory locally.
At the Harvester Center, the factory produced farm equipment for the Canada-based company, but there isn't easy-to-find information on what exactly was produced there.
Organizers are hoping there are local residents with direct knowledge or documentation about the work done at the factory.
The factory closed in 1958.
