The Rumely Allis-Chalmers LaPorte Heritage Center takes shape.

The roof is on!

The Rumely Allis-Chalmers LaPorte Heritage Center is dedicated to promoting, through its Center and projects, a better understanding and appreciation of the agricultural and industrial heritage of the Rumely and Allis-Chalmers companies, their employees, dealers, and customers.

The Center will promote interest and education through collecting, preserving, and displaying items produced and/or sold by the Rumely and Allis-Chalmers companies and the companies that were acquired by or merged with Rumely and Allis-Chalmers.
