The AFCA mission is to
education and promotion
understanding of antique electrical and mechanical fans:
their history, operation, preservation, collection, and
restoration. Antique & Vintage fans, whether
they be water, air, electric or alcohol powered are
excellent examples of the industrial, technological and
stylistic advancement of modern culture.
The AFCA has over 700 members
with a wide variety of backgrounds. The average collector has been collecting for 12 years and has 70
fans in their collection. We have 20 members with 50 or more
years of experience. Their friendship, knowledge, and
willingness to share proves to be a valuable asset for the
Association. The AFCA is a not-for-profit organization. Each new member is provided with an AFCA membership directory, with
access to the considerable AFCA fan history archives, and with
numerous local and national meetings.
