The first tractor monument in the world was established by the people of Wentworth in honour of the TEA20 Harry Ferguson tractors’ part in the building of the massive levee banks that protected Wentworth against the devastating 1956 floods.
The cairns of stones where the monument sits is set at the height of the water that would have inundated the town had not the clay levee banks been put in place. “By God and by Fergie we beat the Flood!”
