About the Club:

The Hill Country Antique Tractor & Engine Club (commonly referred to as “the Club” or “HCAT & EC) was incorporated on January 30, 2002 and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.  The HCAT & EC adopted these beliefs and Bylaws:

  A. Pass along to future generations the history of agricultural machines and methods.

  B. Contribute to the preservation of these machines and methods through examples of restoration, and working demonstrations.

  C. Conduct an annual exhibition of antique tractors, engines, and related agricultural exemption and tools.


In the Club’s humble beginning, monthly meetings and an annual antique tractor and farm machinery show was held in Stonewall, Texas at the Albert Meier Ranch.  The Club quickly outgrew its beautiful Stonewall home and moved to nearby Fredericksburg in 2004.  With long negotiations, several possibilities were investigated and different locations were considered. The Club found its new home for activities at the Gillespie County Fairgrounds.
   Monthly meetings are currently held at the Fredericksburg Girl Scout House, 202 West Austin Street, Fredericksburg on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm until further notice.  July and August meetings are typically held at the Gillespie County fairgrounds in the Club’s area at 6:00pm.
   Membership is open to the general public, regardless of whether or not you own an antique tractor or antique engine. Membership dues of $ 20 per person/$30 per family are paid yearly in June.  Dues are not prorated for a partial year.  Membership forms and payment may be mailed in to HCAT & EC at P.O. Box 851, Fredericksburg, TX  78624.  Good fun and fellowship is FREE with every membership! Please come join us.
