The Motte Museum was once a produce market from the mid-1980s to the late 1990s, it is now a museum hosting the Motte Family Car Collection and the History of the Valley.
John and Evelyn Motte privately founded the Museum through their estate. Their aspirations were to showcase the history of the pioneer families who first settled in the valley, their antique car collection, and document the area’s agricultural roots.
Therefore the Museum was made possible by the JEM Foundation to do just that. And in 2007 Motte Historical Museum Inc. became established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
The Museum commemorates how the valley has grown and changed, in hopes to encourage the community to continually preserve, teach, and educate others about the local history.
