Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum

Recommended Posts

What to do on a quiet Saturday...how about a trip to a car museum? Only 2 hours from Toronto, the Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum is worth a visit. I have been there twice before but another visit is always good. One of the highlights is a new donation to the museum, a 1904 Pierce (before the name change), fresh from a private collection. There are about 100 cars plus bicycles (Pierce built bicycles and motorcycles before cars), hub caps, gas pumps, period clothing, models, the 'Frank Lloyd Wright Filling Station' (no Goober at the pumps) and much more! I took a few photographs and added them to my album listed as .December 2019', enjoy :)

Howard,did they have any of the mid '30's travel trailers they built in their collection? They built three different sizes/models IIRC.

Nothing on display. I have seen a few pictures.

The trailers were a hail Mary attempt to keep workers busy as the depression era sales of their elegant cars were lagging. By comparison to their cars the trailers were rather plain Jane in appearance.
