Our Collections

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. Today between thirty and thirty-five cars are on display each year at the museum in permanent and rotating exhibits. When not on display the remaining cars, many still in the condition that Mr. Swigart found them, are divided among three storage facilities.

The museum also includes automobilia, bicycles, toys, vintage clothing and accessories, and much, much more.

Please Adopt Me!

Adopt Your Favorite Museum Car

Adopt-A-Car, is a new program at The Swigart Museum. If you especially like a specific car in the collection this is your opportunity to adopt that car for one year. Your name will be placed on the stand in front of the car for all to see and admire, not to mention bragging rights. The yearly fee is $100.00. With this program, you will not only help to defer the financial responsibility we have with each car (insurance, care, maintenance), but we hope it will give you the feeling of being part of the museum and its collections.
