Studebaker Carriages - Presidents

The Studebaker National Museum is featuring eight vehicles as part of its "National Treasures" exhibition. There are many carriages and one automobile.

Presidents Arthur, McKinley, Harrison, and Hayes all rode in Studebaker automobiles. President Harrison's carriage cost $1,700 - a princely sum back in the day.

Andrew Beckman, an archivist at the museum, says the exhibit was funded by a “Save America’s Treasures” grant they received several years ago. He says the vehicles range in age from the 1820s to the 1900s.
