Long Description:
Located in a replica of a Shaker round barn on the grounds of the Heritage, this amazing collection of vintage automobiles draws visitors from far and wide who marvel at the condition of these fine vehicles. The vehicles are displayed around the perimeter rings on two floors, and include a stunning assortment of both mint condition and refurbished automobiles.

Among the more prominent cars in the collection are the 1930 Duesenberg Model J Derham Tourster formerly owned by Gary Cooper, a 1922 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Pall Mall Phaeton, a 1930 Cadillac V-16 Convertible Coupe with a Fleetwood custom body (complete with side doors for golf clubs), a red 1927 LaSalle Franklin, and a 1909 White Steam Car Model M (one of the first official cars of the White House), previously owned by President William Howard Taft.
