​Mission:

During the summer of 1984, Crown Point, Indiana celebrated it's sesquicentennial year. As part of that celebration, a group of area residents interested in the restoration and preservation of agricultural tools and machinery, set up a working exhibit around the Courthouse Square. This prompted the chartering of the South Lake County Agricultural Historical Society, Inc. in 1984.


Club members farm our 10+ acres of land to provide the crops we use during our annual show. We plant and harvest the crops using restored antique farm equipment. The same equipment which we demonstrate at our annual show held the second weekend in July.


We conduct monthly business meetings. Our general membership meeting is the 2nd Monday of each month and the Advisory Board meeting the 4th Monday of the month at the Crown Point Bulldog Park 183 S West St Crown Point, IN 46307. Meetings are held at 7:00pm.
