AACA Museum Celebrates
Henry Ford's Birthday
Larry Jewett - July 18, 2013 08:35 AM
The AACA Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania, takes pride in the extensive collection of Fords acquired over the past 10 years. To commemorate the 150th birthday of the company namesake, Henry Ford, the museum will hold a special celebration. July 30 marks the 150th birthday of the man behind the machine, Henry Ford.
From Model T's to Mustangs, take a tour through the life of Henry Ford and the legacy he has left behind. The Museum is home to the only official replica of the Ford Quadricycle, built by Burnard Jarstfer. There is Larry Porter's extremely rare "Alphabet Collection" complete with all of the letter models made from the time of the Quadricycle to the time of the Model T. The museum also has more Model Ts from the early 1900s as well as Ford's throughout the ages.
Mr. Ford, at a young age and throughout his life, believed that education was the key to success. As Ford would say, "Anyone who stops learning is old, whether he is 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young."
The AACA Museum would like to take this opportunity on Henry Ford’s birthday to help others by teaching children, parents, and even well versed car enthusiasts about Ford as a student, an entrepreneur, and an innovator. No matter what your age, you are never too old or too young to learn.
