World's largest collection of Hudson, Essex, & Terraplane automobiles. Ranging from 1909 to 1956 the collection houses some of the finest examples of the autos produced by the Hudson Automobile Company. Both pristine restorations and pristinely preserved examples walk you through time while you reminisce about America's love affair with the automobile.

I visited this attraction during the Quiltfest in 2014,2015, and 2016. The cars are immaculate, shiny, and full of personality and style. The quilts are displayed on the cars. The cars are easily visible inside and out. Very close for your convenience.
