Treasure State Flywheelers started back in 1979 in Great Falls, Montana. Where a group of men and women dedicated to preserving some of the past, acquired and restored antique tractors and stationary engines. At first these people met with each other because they had similar interest and hobbies. They would get together at someone’s shop and fix or repair someone’s flywheel engine or tractor. Soon they decided they should form a club and see about incorporating it. So in 1981, the Treasure State Flywheelers became incorporated.

The club is formally active in many areas and most of our members also take part in other club events. Each year some of our members take part in the Teton Antique Steam & Gas Threshing Bee, located in Choteau, Montana. With many events happening all over the United States, we try to attend as many as possible.

The Treasure State Flywheelers primary show is held each year at the Montana State Fair in Great Falls Montana. Many stationary engines, tractors, and other machinery are displayed and operated to show people how rural America lived and worked.

The show is a good place to relive the past and welcome friends, both old and new, and to have a good time reminiscing about bygone days.

Each year we try to involve more participation and members to our club. We are always looking for new members and old iron. If you or someone you know is interested in these pursuits, please contact us. Old iron is becoming scarcer with each passing day, so if you have something that you don’t know what to do with give any member a call, donations are always appreciated.

The Treasure State Flywheelers meet on the first Sunday of every month, unless noted. The annual dues are $20.00 dollars per year. Are you interested in or are you restoring a stationary engine or an antique tractor. We would like to hear about your project. Please feel free to contact one of the members at (406) 736-5463 or 727-5235
