The Palouse Empire Threshing Bee
September 9, 2021
Members of the Palouse Empire Threshing Association were operating their 1920-era draft horse and mule-drawn threshing machines, the pre-cursors of modern combines, on Monday. They will be at the Palouse Empire Fairgrounds on SR 26 west of Colfax during the annual fair running from September 9-12. Officially named the Palouse Empire Threshing Bee, young and old observers marvel at the historical equipment put to beautiful and utilitarian use.
