Do you enjoy experiencing life as it used to be, and how things weren't quite as easy as they are today? Over the years you may have begun collecting something of interest like farm or garden tractors, antique gas engines, Maytag washing machines, old shop tools, feed grinders, water pumps, whistles, drag saws, literature, farm toys or kitchen gadgets - anything of historic value. If you've been wondering where you can find an item to add to your collection or someone who has knowledge of some of these things that seem to just "follow you home", you've come to the right place.

We welcome anyone who is interested in the preservation of our heritage of antique power or the machinery it drove.

Branch 15 has no paid officers and depends solely on volunteers from the membership. We encourage our members to volunteer to assist on committees to retain the enthusiasm, growth and stability of the organization.
