Flashback Friday with the Historical Society: Converse Equipment Co.

It’s time again for #FlashbackFriday with the Whitewater Historical Society!

This week’s photo from probably sometime in the 1960s features a local business from the past: Converse Equipment Company. Located on East Milwaukee Street, Allen Converse purchased the Ford tractor and farming implement dealership from Les Engel in 1957. April is prime time for local farmers to begin prepping and planting their fields, meaning that the Converses’ shop would’ve seen many farmers looking to repair and purchase farming equipment.
