Who We Are:
We're called I&I because we got our start near Alvin, Illinois, right next to the Illinois/Indiana state line. Since our beginning in 1976, we've moved around some and eventually settled down in Penfield, Illinois.
Our club got started when a group of friends got together to reminisce and relive bygone days. As the club matured and grew, we developed a set of goals that drive our activities today:
• Preservation of Farming Methods of the Past
• Preservation and Restoration of Yesteryear's Equipment
• Annual Antique Tractor
and Gas Engine Show
• Creation of an Agriculture History Center at Penfield, Illinois
• Seasonal Events and Activities
These efforts and goals are achieved with volunteer help from the club's membership and the community. In 1996, the Club acquired the Penfield Improvement Association property and purchased the old Penfield Grade School and grounds. This formed the nucleus of a facility to host the annual Historic Farm Days event and is being developed as a museum to preserve the previous technologies used by farmers. We appreciate the generosity of the people of Penfield and the warm welcome they gave us when we needed a home.
Our monthly membership meetings are usually held the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM at the showgrounds in Penfield. All prospective members or interested parties are welcome to attend.
