The Tri-County Antique Club was formed to promote the appreciation of agricultural history, through the restoration and preservation of antique, vintage and classic automobiles, gasoline and oil engines, gas and steam tractors, farm machinery and other equipment of historical value, and making these available for public viewing. We wish to preserve our past for future generations, not only in Jersey County, but also to include the surrounding counties of Greene and Calhoun, also the adjoining counties of Macoupin and Madison. We wish to identify, retain, preserve and promote our local rural history and to educate the public about "how Grandma and Grandpa used to do it."
