Hendricks County Antique Tractor
& Machinery Association
The purpose of the association is to teach and promote an appreciation of the agricultural heritage of Hendricks County and the men and women that were part of this history. It is the goal of the association to encourage the collecting, restoration, and display of all makes and types of antique agricultural equipment that was used in this area. The association will also promote the preservation and recording of all other aspects of farm life during the history of Hendricks County, and encourage the research of all phases of rural life. It is the goal of the association to encourage communication between the members and the general public about our collections in particular and farm life in general.
The Association was chartered on January 20, 1995 with 164 members present. It is a not-for-profit organization that was formed by county residents to share and preserve the machines that were farm standards during the last century. It is also very important to our association that the Agriculture Heritage be enjoyed for many generations to come. We have members from all backgrounds, walks of life, and all ages. We pride ourselves as a quality association for our youngest to oldest member, doing our utmost to accommodate each and every one. We are a family orientated group, a place for all to be involved. We support the 4-H livestock auction, having purchased several 4-H Add-On’s in the past and we also sponsor the Champion and Reserve Champion trophy for Tractor Maintenance Division in 4-H.
