Academy of Art University Automobile Museum

Academy of Art University Automobile Museum

Richard A. Stephens, former Academy of Art University President, has always had a penchant for cars, a sentiment that has been passed down to his daughter and current President of the Academy, Dr. Elisa Stephens. Desiring to offer automotive design at the Academy, Mr. Stephens wanted to give students a design perspective that they would not be able to receive from anywhere else. With access to a museum of rare and classic vehicles, students can study exquisite design and apply that sense of craftsmanship to their own artistic pursuits.

The Academy of Art University Automobile Museum preserves and pays homage to these classic fixtures of international automotive innovation and also provides inspiration and a sense of history to students who attend the Academy of Art University. Special guests, student groups, and the general public are now able to observe, admire and study this rare collection.

Route 66 Car Museum

Route 66 Car Museum

Route 66 Car Museum is a privately owned car collection that is located along the famed and historic Route 66. Guy Mace started collecting in 1990 when he bought his first Jaguar. The collection has since grown to 75 automobiles that “strikes a fancy.”

Ranging from early brass era cars to vehicles used in cinema such as the Gotham Roadster, this collection is sure to have a vehicle for every museum goer’s taste.

The museum houses seven Jaguars, two Rolls Royces, a 1963 Morgan owned by Desert Storm’s General Norman Schwarzkopf, and the famous truck from the movie ‘Grapes of Wrath’ that starred Henry Fonda.

Several very unique classic cars are on display. Of note is the 1936 Horch, one of about 50 that were sold to the German government in 1937 for use by the military’s General Officers. This Horch won second place in the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Prewar Preservation Class. It is 100 percent original, having been stored for over 50 years in South Dakota. Two other classics in the collection, the 1933 Auburn 12, and the 1926 Kissel Brougham, both National First Prize winners of the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA), represent the pinnacle of 1920’s and 1930’s classics, along with several other unusual cars on display from that era.”

Route 66 Mother Road Museum

Route 66 Mother Road Museum

The Route 66 “Mother Road” Museum was dedicated on July 4, 2000, in the historic Casa del Desierto, Harvey House, in Barstow, California. The Museum displays a collection of historic photographs and artifacts related to Route 66 and the Mojave Desert Communities. Displays include the development of the United States Route 66 from early pioneer trails, railroads, automotive history, businesses, and sites.

Visitors making this roadside attraction a day destination or staying in the area longer can learn more about what to experience while on the Mojave Desert or on Route 66 from many handouts, books and knowledgeable docents. Because of greater interest, our technical resources and preservation efforts are building to offer better assistance.

On May 1, 2003 Hampton Inn Hotels designated the Harvey House Route 66 Mother Road Museum as a “Roadside Attraction” by officially posting a sign, one of “66” along the Route’s 2,448 miles.

During the heyday of rail passenger service in the Western United States, Barstow boasted a splendid rail depot/restaurant/hotel complex called the “Casa del Desierto”, House of the Desert. Completed in 1911, the Casa del Desierto was the fourth “Harvey House” built by the Atchinson, Topeka, and the Santa Fe Railway Company along its right-of-way and operated by the Fred Harvey Company. These Harvey Houses established an unparalleled standard of food service to the traveler, and entered the lore of American railroading and the West.

Wayne County Historical Museum

Wayne County Historical Museum

In 1930 the Wayne County, Indiana Historical Society accepted the gift of extensive personal collections from Julia Meek Gaar, and the gift of the historical Friends Meeting House at 1150 North A Street, Richmond from the Whitewater Monthly Meeting of Friends (General Conference) commonly known as Hicksites. The beautiful Meetinghouse ground was purchased and two adjoining lots were added later.

Through the succeeding years area residents have contributed countless heirlooms and memorabilia to help establish an outstanding record of the past. Others have given cash donations and bequests which made possible the Lindemuth addition in 1954 and accessory buildings which include the county’s oldest log school house (1812) and a typical two-story log residence built in 1823. Wayne County’s history is particularly significant because this county became a major gateway to the West and at one time was the most populous county in Indiana. When the National Road opened in 1833, countless emigrant families trudged over it on their way westward.

The vehicle collection focuses on Indiana-manufactured automobiles, several less-well-known makes are represented, along with other automobilia.
