Eastern Museum of Motor Racing

Back in 1975, a small group of racing enthusiasts known as the Williams Grove Old Timers, gathered near Harrisburg, Pa. They shared a common interest in the early days of American motor racing and a desire to preserve the history of that bygone era. To serve this purpose, they immediately planned the construction of a public museum of racing history to be known as the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing.
"Our museum houses one of the most extensive collections of racing memorabilia in the United States and has on display some of the most historic race cars of racing's "Golden Era"."

William E. Swigart Automobile Museum

The William E. Swigart, Jr. collection, believed to be the oldest in the United States, represents over a century of automotive history. Recognizing that old cars were often dismantled so that their parts could be used to create or repair some other machine, W. Emmert Swigart began to collect and display old cars as an extension of his insurance business in the early 1920s. After his death in 1949 his son, William E. Swigart, Jr., expanded the collection and constructed the museum facility to share his passion with the public.
