Pottstown Library to Host Presentation on Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles

Blogger's Note: The following wa sprovided by the Pottstown Regional Public Library.

Autumn Shaner, Curatorial Assistant, Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles, will give a presentation about the museum and its exhibits in the balcony meeting room of the Pottstown Regional Public Library on Tuesday, Aug. 15 at 7 p.m.

The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles houses dozens of automobiles, trucks, and motorcycles that were manufactured right here in Pennsylvania while the industry was still in its infancy. 

The mission of the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles is to collect and preserve vehicles built in Pennsylvania. 

Contained in the collection are examples of motorized, horse-drawn, and man-powered road transportation — from wagons and trucks to bicycles and cars. 

Many of the manufacturers’names may be unfamiliar, but all were made right in our own backyards here in Pennsylvania. 

In addition to dozens of road vehicles, the Boyertown Museum also counts related literature and memorabilia amongst its collections.

The Pottstown Regional Public Library partners with the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles to offer free passes to the Museum. The pass is good for free admission of one adult and up to three children
