HISTORY OF WHITE COUNTY ANTIQUE POWER ASSOCIATION
WHITE COUNTY, INDIANA

The White County Antique Power Association (WCAPA) was officially organized April 2005 at Monticello, Indiana for the purpose of passing on our rich White County agricultural heritage to the next generation. For about 25 years, "antique tractor people" had unofficially gathered at the White County Fair to show their antique tractors. About 20 to 30 tractors would be on display each year. Every Fair there would be talk of getting a group of antique tractor lovers organized, but nothing happened. With the spark of the White County Fairgrounds purchasing an adjacent wooded area to the east of the Fairgrounds in 2004, the idea was born to expand the antique tractor show. With the pent-up interest to organize a White County antique tractor club and now a great big place to show tractors and hold demonstration events, the White County Antique Power Association was organized. The antique tractors, machinery show and demonstrations have become a major attraction at the White County Fair each July. In 2005 there were 50 tractors on display and expanded machinery demonstrations. In 2006 and 2007 over 100 tractors were displayed plus farm implements and gas engines. In 2007 the Fair antique tractor showgrounds were fenced in and an antique post office building was moved in by WCAPA members. In 2009 there are over 80 plus WCAPA members that enjoy monthly meetings on various topics and an annual auction and Christmas party. Other WCAPA organized events include plow days and tractor drives. The WCAPA monthly newsletter, "Remaking History" and the WCAPA web site, "wcantiquepower.com" keeps members informed of activities. Membership in WCAPA is open to anyone with an antique tractor interest in the White County, Indiana and surrounding area by paying annual dues. The original founding directors and officers in 2005 include: Claude Butt, President; Tim Hall, Vice-President; Marc King, Secretary: Dan Hunt, Treasurer; and Dick Westerhouse, Board Member. Later in 2005 Jerry Alma was added as a Board Member. In 2006, Bill Dahlenburg, Justin Crichfield, and Wayne Potts were added as Board Members.
