From what began in the spring of 1968 as a group of neighbors met in farm shop north of Hamilton, Illinois, discussing how they wanted to display their growing collection of antique tractors, has grown in today what we know as Western Illinois Threshers, Inc. whose members work throughout the year to prepare for their three-day annual show that educates, entertains, and to many, brings back a fond memory of bygone ways of life.
