New additions to show grounds
Construction of our new registration building at the show grounds is nearly finished with the latest addition of concrete floor. It looks great. We have a work day recently and we got some finishing touches done. Wow what a great addition to our show! 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 or our face book page for updated photos. Generous donations from Max Fitzpatrick towards this project is very much appreciated. Also thanks to Shelby Materials for working with us on there donation and Milestone and all the crew for there donation of labor and finish work on the concrete floor. What a great group of local businesses to work with. We were also able to get concrete in the big gas engine building as well with all of these great folks support. Thanks also to Bob Willard for his great effort on arranging details on both concrete projects.
The Rural Smiths of Mid America, (blacksmith group) have been working on there building as well and it is progressing great. They can use some help on there project as well so jump in and help where you can. 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 construction of this structure will help for a permanent place they can call home.
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
