The Wilson County Old Iron Club is a 501(c)3 organization, totally dependent on donations, grants, and fundraising efforts. Through a variety of large and small gifts from individuals and businesses, partnerships with local organizations, and the generosity of spirit of many, we have been able to host our annual Old Iron Days show each September, the Kansas Heritage Lecture Series, Conservation District events, and more. We currently have over 100 members from multiple states. Our sponsorships from local businesses help to support the Old Iron Days Show and other activities throughout the year.
The Wilson County Old Iron Club is a somewhat unique club in that nearly 100% of the equipment we display at our annual show actually works as it was created to work. When visitors attend our show, they will see working demonstrations rather than the static displays seen at many other shows around the nation.
If you want to see one of the largest collections of rare engines, an oil field powerhouse complete with a band wheel, and a sawmill powered by a Mac truck, this is the show for you!

The board of directors consists of 5 elected members serving 2-year terms, and the elected club officers.
To keep the Old Iron Club focused on their goals, and steps to accomplish those goals, the Board of Directors has created an Operational Plan as our guide. This plan is updated every other year. You will find it posted below in 3 sections.
