The Coulee Antique Engine Club is a club dedicated to the preservation and display of antique agricultural equipment, including, but not limited to, tractors, plows, gas and steam engines, garden equipment, and much more.
 

Each member of the club are collectors of some sort of old iron, all of which they wish to preserve for future generations. Those who grew up with the equipment hold it even closer to their hearts.

If you have an interest in preserving the past, please stop in to see our annual show or become a member!

 

History

 

The Coulee Antique Engine Club started as a small group of people getting together in the Dahl Pharmacy parking lot in Viroqua, WI to show their love of old engines and machinery...

 

This group soon grew into the Coulee Antique Engine Club, and held their first meeting in 1971. Over the years, membership continued to grow and in 2003, was incorporated as the Western Wisconsin Agricultural Museum, Inc.

However after much debate, the club name has returned to Coulee Antique Engine Club and will be official as of January 2015.

 

Membership now stands at approximately 220 members with new members being added every year.
