In 1987, Bob Stump and Gerald Stephen, forever residents of Randolph County Indiana, approached Bud Carpenter about forming a club. A club to share and display antique tractors and they thought Bud was the person to get it started. And he did, he made a plan to meet at the 4-H Fair in 1989, and he dreamed of having a place that belonged to the club in the future. Their dream came true. We now have our own grounds with the help of Randolph County Commissioners, and we have a membership of 235 people, we have an annual July show, and many other events throughout the year.
We strive to uphold the by-laws that state we are a club dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of equipment, tools, and the ways of the past. We further strive to educate others in a fun and memorable way.
This picture is their dream today, with Bud's original design.
