The newest addition to the many historical attractions in Ladysmith is Ed’s Machine Shed – Wisconsin’s Plow Museum. Located at the Rusk County Historical Museum off of Highway 8 at the Fairgrounds in Ladysmith,  Ed’s Machine Shed features over 40 restored vintage plows and tractors. Some pieces in the collection date over 100 years! It is believed to be the largest assembled collection of antique plows anywhere. Ladysmith resident Ed Tomasovich, who collected and donated his unique farm equipment, will give tours of the plows to anyone interested. According to Ed, it took him 20 years to gather and restore this collection. He carefully disassembled, hand sanded, painted, and reassembled each one piece by piece. The collection includes around 40 vintage plows and tractors such as John Deere, McCormick-Deering, Oliver, La Crosse, and International Harvester. All expositions are in working order.
