Reflect on the past
Caterpillar enjoys a strong legacy, and you'll enjoy a journey through time in the Caterpillar Heritage Gallery. From helping build San Francisco's famed cable car system, to the construction of the Three Gorges Dam in China, to the widening of the Panama Canal and hundreds of important milestones in between – Caterpillar was there.
See what the Holt steam track-type tractor prototype from 1905 looked like. Get up close and personal with the first Caterpillar-engineered machine — the Model Twenty. Sit in the seat of an antique Caterpillar D8 Tractor and feel what it was like to operate this machine in the 1930s.
The Heritage Gallery often features items donated to Caterpillar from retirees and brand enthusiasts. If you are interested in donating an item related to Caterpillar or its subsidiaries, please contact us.
