Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles
When the car industry was just blossoming, many vehicles were manufactured in Pennsylvania. The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles preserves that legacy, with exhibits stretching back through the 19th and 20th centuries. Established in 1965 by Paul Hafer—a 57-year industry vet—and his wife Erminie, the museum exclusively features vehicles produced in Pennsylvania and none that simply had "Pennsylvania or bust" scribbled on their rear views.
- Eye Catcher: vintage truck bodies built by Boyertown Auto Body Works, whose former factory building serves as the museum's main gallery
- Permanent Mainstay: a restored 1921 Sunoco Gas Station complete restoration, along with two Fry Visible Gas pumps, a kerosene pump, an oil pump, and signage
- Don't Miss: the Fegely's Reading Diner, a restoration of a 1938 Jerry O'Mahony roadside eatery
- Hidden Gem: an 1827 Conestoga wagon, built in Berks County, PA
- Past Exhibits: the museum's been visited by such luminaries as Nellybelle, the 1946 Willys Jeep from The Roy Rogers Show.
