The Western Michigan Old Engine Club was formed on February 10, 1974 in Riverton Township. Located between Scottville and Ludington, MI, 21 people gathered for the first meeting.
Members of the club are interested in restoring and running old gas hit and miss engines, steam engines, or other antique equipment. Originally, the collection was exhibited at the Fred Donohue's farm south of Ludington. When the collection became too large for the farm it was moved to Mason County's Historic White Pine Village.
Riverside Park in Scottville, Michigan. A pavilion was built at this location and the club hosts its annual show on the first Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of August.
Annual Old Engine Club Show
Held the first weekend of August (August 2-5, 2018) at Scottville's Riverside Park, the Old Engine Club Show has been an annual event for 45 years. It's so popular that many of the participants bring their tractors over on the S.S. Badger carferry to Ludington and caravan the back roads to Scottville.
Refreshments and food are available. Admission is Adults $6, Kids 12 & under free. Thursday is Senior Day, 65 & older $5. Gates open Thursday, Friday & Saturday from 9am-6pm, Sunday from 9am-2pm with limited show and displays.
