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.

Interesting read about International Harvester Co. ... See MoreSee Less

International Harvester Co. Cyrus Hall McCormick, a Virginia inventor of plows and reapers, decided to move to Chicago in 1847, when he and his partner Charles M. Gray built a reaper factory on the north bank of the Chicago River. McCormick had a plant at Blue Island and Western Avenues that employed over 5,000 people; the Deering Harvester works on Fullerton Avenue on the city's North Side employed about 7,000. In 1902, McCormick and Deering—along with the Plano Manufacturing Co. (which had about 1,400 workers at its West Pullman plant) and two smaller farm equipment makers—merged to form International Harvester. By 1910, when IH grossed about $100 million in annual sales, it had over 17,000 workers in the Chicago area, making it the leading employer in the region. In 1962 International Harvestor employed 68,000 people nationwide, of which at least 16,155 were in Illinois, excluding employees at the corporate headquarters, construction headquarters and their manufacturing research location (no employee count for these locations). Their headquarters were at 180 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago. The construction equipment division headquarters was in Melrose Park. They had four tractor works plants: At 2600 West 31st Blvd. in Chicago they employed 2,500 people making tractors. At 260 East Elm Street in Canton, Illinois they employed 2,000 workers making farm implememts. At 1100 Third Street, East Moline they employed 2,555 making farm implements including their combines. At 500 42nd Street, Rock Island they employed 3,400 people at their Farmall Works making tractors. The West Pullman Works at 1015 West 120th Street, Chicago employed 1,600 people. Manufacturing Research was at 5225 South Western Avenue, Chicago. The Steel Division, Wisconsin Steel Works at 2701 East 106th Street, Chicago employed 3,000. A subsidiary, The Frank G. Hough Company at Sunnyside Avenue and &th Street employed 1,100 people who made material handling equipment, tractors, towing, shoveling, etc. www.encyclopedia.chicagohistory.org/pages/2723.html
