Flathead Lake Cherry industry is displayed in a very complete collection at the Miracle of America Museum. From 6 rare orchard tractors and crawlers to a 1949 cherry red Ford 1/2 ton pickup. It is appropriately named a “Flathead Cherry Hauler” for several reasons; it is powered by the original V8 flathead engine, is in cherry condition, and it is hauling two 3 foot diameter cherries made by sculpture artist Gil Mangels, founder of the museum. Also see a growing collection of unique cherry pitters, pruners, and boxes with area growers names stenciled on the end dating back to the 1930’s.
