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.
