The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles has taken a giant step into the future by installing electric vehicle charging stations for visitors to utilize. These new chargers, four Tesla and two universal connectors, will be installed for use in the Museum’s parking lot across from the main entrance along South Walnut Street.
To celebrate, the Boyertown Museum held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new electric vehicle chargers. Both Tesla and Quigley Chevrolet attended the ceremony with Tesla offering test drives. Plus, as a nod to our country’s long history of electric vehicle innovation and design, the Museum volunteers are currently working on getting a 1919 Detroit Electric Coupe in running condition.
The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles is open seven days a week from 9:30 am -4:00 pm. The Museum, located at 85 South Walnut Street in Boyertown, PA in a former factory building of the Boyertown Auto Body Works, preserves the transportation history of Pennsylvania and displays over ninety locally manufactured cars, trucks, motorcycles, sleighs, and other types of vehicles.
Also on display are two examples of roadside architecture: a 1921 cottage style Sunoco gas station and the 1938 Jerry O’Mahony diner. Admission rates are $8.00 for adults, $7.00 for seniors and AAA. Ages 15 & under are free. For more information call 610-367-2090 or visit www.boyertownmuseum.org.
