Rolling in the 1909 Brush!
Every year in early September, we get a temporary exhibit – the 1909 Brush vehicle – thanks to Doug Rather, owner, who purchased it from Leon Wilson a few years ago. As Mr. Rather says, “Mr. Wilson’s stipulation was that I would allow the museum to display it each year and I have no problem with that!” Visitors love seeing the original model and hearing the story of the Abernathy brothers, which is also taught to students during the fall session. Those two young boys drove one just like this 1,500 miles from New York to Oklahoma. The vehicle has a wooden undercarriage that is in great shape. This vehicle is used as a visual aid to teach the students about engineering, math and more!
