Our club grew out of the ashes of a dying breed of men called the Brotherhood of Threshermen.  It was their hope that the tradition of the local threshing ring would not be forgotten.  We continue to hold threshing demonstrations every year at our reunion in August.  In addition to that, we have agricultural displays of all types at our reunion that help us to recall bygone days on the farm.  We are especially grateful to the family of one of our founders, Luther Caldwell - after whom our grounds are named, whose generous support has enabled us to build this working museum.
