Thanks to all that attended and helped out at our show this year. It truly is an honor to have such a group of collectors to help bring all areas of the show together. Thanks for being patient with admission gates and changes made in that area. We had a few glitches but ran smoothly with the help of a great bunch of cub scouts and there leaders to promote new changes. Thanks to the scouts for staying with us and supporting the new system at the walk in gates. It is great to work with a fine group. Also thanks to the Hoosier Falcon Club and the car show on Saturday. The turn out for first time included with our event was fantastic! Another great group to work with side by side as well.
Don’t forget to come back next year as we are hosting Indiana A-C partners club state show and featuring Allis Chalmers and Rumley tractors and equipment. Get ready to attend another show just a short time away June 19-21, 2015—— You may contact Jerry Moore at 765-623-2449 for details on the A-C Partners club

New additions to show grounds
We have begun construction of our new registration building at the show grounds! This will be a great addition to the folks that work our check in for members and vendors during our summer annual show. Check out our photos page. In the coming weeks we will be working on this structure so plan on checking with a director and see where you can help out. Donations for funds are still greatly accepted towards this project so please keep them coming in as it helps to bring this project closer to completion for this years show.
As stated above we also have started construction of a new building for the blacksmith group known as Rural Smiths of Mid America. This group has been a great addition to our annual show and will be a great partner for years to come. In the coming weeks we will be continuing to construct this structure for a permanent place they can call home.
DON’T MISS OUR NEXT ANNUAL SHOW
JCAMA is a Club devoted to the restoration and preservation of the farm tools and equipment of years gone by. Our Fathers and Forefathers used these to till the soil, sow the seeds, and reap the harvest.
JCAMA was started in the winter of January 1992. 35 Charter members started and formed the Club. That following September the first collection of Antique Machinery was brought together to have the first show.
The Club has grown to a great group of folks from all age groups and they enjoy bringing back our Farming Heritage to life for others to enjoy. Many changes have come along in the last several decades for farming.
One could only imagine what it was like to first farm with Horses or Oxen and then in later years be introduced to a new age, the gas engine, tractors and trucks.
Many of our club members from the older generation have many story’s to tell about how farming has changed throughout the years and the hardships that have went along with them to bring the Farming to what we know today.
JCAMA club members strive to bring back a little of that past every year at our show to educate the younger generation’s of today to hopefully appreciate what our Fathers and Forefathers have done for decades. Our goal is to give the older generations a chance to step back in time, and reminisce of the long ago forgotten past of our Farming Heritage.
Visit with us at our annual show the third weekend in June and see what we have to offer for the community. Our show grounds is located in the great Johnson County Recreation Park just west of the intersection of Highway 31 and ST. RD. 252 near Edinburgh Indiana and Camp Atterbury Military base.

At our 2012 show:
A great attraction for the 2012 annual show was a 1900 year old California redwood log that was carved into a three room house. The log is 33 foot long and around 9 foot across. In the off season it resides in the state of Florida. It has been displayed at several state and county fairs and has been a great attraction for years. This was an opportunity to see the massive size of the redwood log that only grows in the western United States. This is said to possibly be the oldest wood liveable structure known since the time of Christ. Click here for more allen-redwood
