Richland Creek Antique Power Association was
organized in 1996, by a group of men and women in
Saluda, SC, to preserve and re-create life on the
farm from yesteryear. Members of the association
meet year-round to plan for upcoming events and to
enjoy social time together.
The association hosts an annual fall festival where
people can learn about farming through sights and
conversations with others who remember the days when
farms were plentiful. When compared to today's
complex farm machines, those on display each year at
the festival are quite simple. However, for farmers
using those simple tools it meant power - an
improved power - free from the use of horses and
mules. Equipment and craftsmen at each festival
display old ways of rural farm production passed
down from previous generations. Members of the
Richland Creek Antique Power Association freely give
of their time and talents to make this presentation
for older generations to reflect upon and for the
education of younger generations.
Due to the COV-19 virus we will not be able to have the
Richland Creek Antique Fall Festival as scheduled.
