Located in Norwich, the Northeast Classic Car Museum first opened in 1997 with an exhibit of 50 vintage automobiles. The collection consisted of cars primarily manufactured by the Franklin Automobile Company of Syracuse, and each had been meticulously restored by local owner and collector George Staley.
Today, thanks to generous donations, the collection has grown to over 160 vintage automobiles and fills five connected buildings. A carpeted walkway leads visitors through several themed exhibits where classic car models like the Franklin, the Pierce Arrow, Auburn, Maxwell, Delorean, and others great guests as they explore the museum.
The Northeast Classic Car Museum, where sculpted hood ornaments, streamlined art deco styles, space-age tail fins and lots of chrome, bring fond memories and a new appreciation for automotive design on New York’s “Path Through History.”
