event_note schedule & tickets   place venue   stars official site  

From the 1890s through the 1920s, people experimented with a new engineering marvel: the automobile. While the skeptics waited for the fad to pass and the world to return to the civilized ways of the horse and carriage, others looked to a future of motorized travel. A few companies succeeded, and many failed. In 1897, twins Francis and Freelan Stanley of Kingfield, Maine, designed their first automobile, in many ways just to see if they could do it better. By 1902, the Stanley Motor Carriage Company was born. They did not design just any automobile, but one powered by steam, the most advanced and prevalent technology of the time. Explore this exhibit during an upcoming event at the Marshall Steam Museum. This exhibition was made possible through the generous support of the Delaware Humanities Forum, Mushroom Festival Grant Program and the Joseph Boxler Education Fund.
