Museum of the Horseless Carriage – Capital Campaign
As many of you know, there has been a desire for many years to establish a museum completely dedicated to Brass Era cars and the pioneers who made them a reality. The willingness of the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan to accept us as one of the partner museums on their 90-acre property is really the only practical answer. We have begun a three-year capital campaign to raise $3,000,000 which will be used to build the 10,000 square foot building, pay for the display materials and furnishings, as well as create a $1,300,000 endowment to insure its long-term viability. The first step in that process is to create a display in the existing Steam Barn, which is currently underway.
