During the summer of 1984, Crown Point, Indiana celebrated it's sesquicentennial year. As part of that celebration, a group of area residents interested in the restoration and preservation of agricultural tools and machinery, set up a working exhibit around the Courthouse Square. This prompted the chartering of the South Lake County Agricultural Historical Society, Inc. in 1984.
Club members farm our 10+ acres of land to provide the crops we use during our annual show. We plant and harvest the crops using restored antique farm equipment. The same equipment which we demonstrate at our annual show held the second weekend in July.
We conduct monthly business meetings. Our general membership meeting is the 2nd Monday of each month and the Advisory Board meeting the 4th Monday of the month. Meetings are held at 7:00pm. Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in this area, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions. We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!
The mission of our organization is to preserve and display antique farm tools, equipment, old cars and trucks, and household items which are of interest or educational value to the general public. We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our community. Our members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. Using data driven models, we provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
