Our remarkable collections have existed for more than 85 years, beginning as a private passion of our founder W. Emmert Swigart. His son, William E. Swigart, Jr., fell under the spell of these wonderful machines and built up the collection to about 150 cars, of which 30 to 35 are on display at the museum at one time. Some are one-of-a-kind, such as the 1936 Duesenberg 12 cylinder Gentlemen’s Speedster, the 1920 Carroll, and the 1916 Scripps-Booth.

Hi, welcome to our town. We encourage you to visit our local museum, the Windber Area Museum, at 15th. St. in Windber.

The old farm house is kept as closely as possible to the days of long ago when the dirt buggy roads led to the only home that could be seen by a lamp light in the widow.
