The town was originally named Hanley, after an employee of the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad. The name’s similarity to Hawley, Minn., led to mail deliveries to the wrong towns. The problem was solved in 1886 when Hanley was renamed Hanley Falls. The postal officials just didn’t care that there were no falls in Hanley. What can be found in Hanley Falls, Minn., is the Minnesota Machinery MuseumA manikin and a climbs a utility glorious celebration of the pole in the town’s Minnesota agricultural history at its annual Cooperative Pioneer Power Good Old Days and Thresher Light and Show in August.

In the tractor pull, getting to the end of the course is known as a “full pull.”  If more than one entrant completes the course, more weight is added to the sled, and the winner is the one who pulls the sled the longest. A log, similar to the one in the foreground, has been “trimmed to square.”  The saw operator has begun “slabing off” planks.  The belt on the pulley extends 75 feet to the steam engine powering the operation.
