The Buckeye Iron Will Club, Inc. was founded in 1995 when a group of friends and fellow antique collectors gathered in southern Richland County to discuss the inception of a tractor and gas engine club.
After a few years of gathering information and much preparation, the Buckeye Iron Will Club hosted its very first show in May 1997 at the Richland County Fairgrounds, Mansfield, Ohio. Since the clubs inception, the membership has grown to over 500 individuals and families.
Each year the club holds its annual tractor and gas engine show at the Richland County Fairgrounds in Mansfield, OH. Cockshutt tractors and equipment along with Wheel Horse lawn and garden equipment will be featured at the 2014 show scheduled for Sept. 6-7.
Many events and activities take place the weekend of the show. Live entertainment, arts & crafts, kiddy pedal pull & games, pie & goodie auction as well as an antique tractor pull accompanies the tractors and gas engines on display all weekend long. New to the 2014 show is a gas and diesel truck pull. There is something for everyone at the Buckeye Iron Will Club Tractor and Gas Engine Show.
Club dues are $5 per member or $10 per family and are due annually in January. Lifetime memberships are also available. For more information about joining the club or for more information about the 2014 show, please contact Barry Naugle at 419-747-3829 or check out the clubs Show Information page.
