General Club Information

    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. 

    Each year the club continues to hold its annual tractor and gas engine show at the Richland County Fairgrounds. The Buckeye Iron Will Club holds the annual event in conjunction with the Richland County Steam Threshers Association and the Buckeye Wheel Horse Collectors. 

    Events and activities throughout the weekend include a display of tractors, gas engines, vintage garden tractors and various outdoor vendors. There is something for everyone our annual 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 show, please contact Bill Gardner or check out the clubs Show Information page.

    Be sure to check out the antique tractor and equipment display at the 2020 Richland County Fair August 10-15. The county fair will be featuring Ford tractors and related equipment.
