Harry Ferguson achieved worldwide fame with his invention of the Ferguson 3-point linkage system.  This system still forms the basis of almost every tractor made today and he is widely regarded within agricultural societies around the world as the most prolific engineer of all time.

The Harry Ferguson Memorial Garden, opposite his birthplace, is open to the public and every August an event is held in his honour.

In the beautiful Hillsborough Forest you can discover a bronze memorial that commemorates the centenary of his first flight in 1909 and there's also a half life-sized sculpture in steel and bronze depicting the engineer in his aeroplane just outside of Hillsborough Village.
