The scoop: The Share­crop­pers An­tique Farm Equip­ment Club started in La Grange in 1994 to bring back the lo­cal agri­cul­tural her­itage. The group is ded­i­cated to the preser­va­tion of an­tique farm equip­ment through the restora­tion, ed­u­ca­tion, dis­play and op­er­a­tion of equip­ment at lo­cal shows and events. It be­came a branch of the na­tional Early Days Gas En­gine and Trac­tor As­so­ci­a­tion in 1997. Mem­bers live in a 125-mile ra­dius of Bren­ham, which is about 90 miles east of Austin.
