16 Aug 2015 - Photo by: Kay Dixon - While two horses pull this single plow, Major Bell employed three horses for the same task. The reason for this might have been that in 1882 Major Bell was breaking virgin prairie soil, while the land being broken today at the Bell Farm has been tilled for over a century.
