Rural Indiana – Spotlight on Portland

A small community in Eastern Indiana (straight north of Richmond) on US 27, Portland is home to the largest Antique Gas Engine & Tractor Show in the Midwest. The show is held annually at the Jay County Fairgrounds in August. They also conduct Swap & Sell Meets in the May and October annually. The October one is happening this weekend (17-18)…So if you’re in need of a tractor or parts, you’ll want to hurry over today or tomorrow.

The cool thing about the fairgrounds is that it boasts a restored 1891 octagon barn.
