The Camp Creek Threshers
The Camp Creek Threshers are a part of the Rural Nebraska Heritage Association. We are a non-profit volunteer organization whose purpose is to preserve and educate about the agricultural and industrial heritage of the plains and Nebraska. Each year several events are hosted at the association grounds just east of Waverly, Nebraska. The featured event occurs each summer during the third weekend of July which is the antique machinery and threshing show. During the show many types of antique equipment can be seen operating helping to bring the past alive for those who remember it and to educate all about the past we come from. There is something for all to enjoy at the Camp Creek Threshers for everyone.
