The Galion Historical Society received a new road grader Wednesday, thanks to a donation from a Troy Township couple.
Ed Robinson said the grader was used in his family to help level out stone in the driveway.
“I’m hoping someone may see history in the future,” he said.
That won’t be a problem, according to Galion Historical Society officials.
“We’re thrilled to have it,” Director Andee Wildenthaler. said. “It’s beautiful and a wonderful addition to our industrial collection.”
Officials and the Robinson family saw the finished project Wednesday at Pioneer Career and Technology Center in Shelby, where a Precision Mechanics class refurbished the equipment.
“It was a great way for them to understand how a road grader works,” teacher Chris Karl said. “They spent a lot of time fixing it up (to a point) where it mechanically works.”
“I liked working on old antique machinery and making it new again,” student David Durnwald added.
