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 in Mansfield, Ohio. Since the clubs inception, the membership has grown to over 500 individuals and families.
In 2023 the board of directors have made the hard decision to not hold our annual tractor and gas engine show at the Richland County Fairgrounds. The Buckeye Iron Will Club is planning to team up with area events throughout the year to display our tractors and equipment around the county.
Watch for information about where the club will setting up displays through the year on our website and Facebook page.
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 show, please contact Bill Gardner.
Be sure to check out the antique tractor and equipment display at the 2023 Richland County Fair in August. More information regarding the featured tractor and equipment will be announced as soon as it becomes available.
