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. Ohio built, homemade and oddball tractors, equipment and engines will be featured at the show scheduled for September 8, 9 & 10, 2017. The Buckeye Iron Will Club also welcomes the Richland County Steam Threshers Association and the Buckeye Wheel Horse Collectors Club.
Events and activities throughout the weekend include live entertainment, arts & crafts, kiddy pedal pull & games, pie & goodie auction as well as an antique tractor pull, gas & diesel truck pull and garden tractor pull accompanies the tractors, gas engines and vintage garden tractors on display all weekend long. 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 2017 show, please contact Barry Naugle or check out the clubs Show Information page.
