JUMP project to display 52 antique tractors from J.R. Simplot’s collection

The Simplot Corp.’s JUMP building project now under construction in downtown Boise – JUMP stands for “Jack’s Urban Meeting Place” – will house a display of 52 antique tractors that the late J.R. Simplot collected and long wanted to put on display, the Capital Press reports today. Simplot, the Idaho potato and microchip magnate who died in 2008, purchased 110 antique tractors in 1998 at an auction in Billings, Mont., reporter Sean Ellis reports; they include rare tractors from around the world. The JUMP project also will include Simplot’s new corporate headquarters; public art; studios and gathering spaces; an outdoor amphitheater and urban park; you can read Ellis’ full report here.
