The Princeton, MA Historical Society is planning an event in June to highlight the former Princeton Antique Auto Museum.
They are looking for any interested antique vehicle owners( not exclusive to Model T's) to bring their vehicles to help showcase this event. They are also planning a drive to the top of Mt. Wachusett to celebrate the annual 4th of July race up the mountain which was held by Al Garganigo, the museums owner.
If interested you can go to the Princeton, MA Historical Society web site and click on "Upcoming Events" for more info, or contact me and I will try to provide answers to any questions.
I snipped the following from their website
As part of the PHS educational programs offered to the public, the society is conducting a talk & slide presentation, which will document the history of the Princeton Antique Auto Museum from 1935 to 1962.
