    Property was closed in 1982. In the building with the restaurant there was the IH Service training center located. Property did not make it to the Case merger. The owner of the golf course unfortunately do not like foreign people to go inside. I had the luck, that a former employee's son managed it, that I could get in.

    This is a video I made during my US trip in 2017, when I visited the location of the former International Photographic Center again, which is now part of a golf course. I was lucky to get an inside tour through the old farm house, which you can spot in many advertising pictures and films. The farm house itself is part of the golfcourse now and is sometimes rented to hunters.

    Attached you can find in my opinion some amazing photos of the former International Photographic Center in Sheridan, Illinois. In one picture you can see the IH training center for farm and construction equipment, which was also located on the photo farm.

I could only photograph the magazine sites, so it is a little bit difficult to read. I will try to attache all the sites in the next posts...

If you search there for "International Harvester Photographic Center" you must find the video. i try to link the video in this post, but I dont know if it works. Maybe someone of you can help me if it does not work? Sorry, I did not cut the video, but I think it is interesting for the IH enthusiasts among us.
