Pottstown Library Features Boyertown Museum

POTTSTOWN PA – Learn about what the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles is and does, and why, in a presentation to be offered Aug. 15 (2017; Tuesday) at 7 p.m. in the Pottstown Regional Public Library, 500 E. High St. The event is free and open to the public, library director Susan Davis announced.

The museum, located at 85 S. Walnut St., Boyertown, houses dozens of automobiles, trucks, and motorcycles that were manufactured in Pennsylvania while the industry was still in its infancy. Its mission is to collect and preserve vehicles built in Pennsylvania.

Its collection includes examples of motorized, horse-drawn, and man-powered road transportation from wagons and trucks to bicycles and cars. Many manufacturers’ names may seem unfamiliar to modern consumers, but all existed here. In addition to dozens of road vehicles, the museum also counts related literature and memorabilia among its collections.

A library partnership allow it to offer free passes to the museum, good for admission of one adult and up to three children. Ask about their availability at the circulation desk.
