Studebaker National Museum
South Bend, Indiana
What a boon the Studebaker brothers contributed to the growth of South Bend, Indiana! Starting out as blacksmiths; evolving into carriage makers; and then finally becoming car manufacturers—the company exuded high quality conveyances throughout its 1852-1966 reign. Renowned for its quality Presidential carriages, many presidents in the mid 1800's used Studebaker carriages (including President Lincoln) for transport from one location to another. In the Muppet Movie it was a Studebaker whose trunk was altered creating a hidden steering column so that it looked like the Muppets were driving instead of a human. What a quality museum! What a proud history!
