The Henry Ford Museum

by Chris Guenzler

We walked from the Greenfield Village towards the Henry Ford Museum where I spotted this.

The Henry Ford Statue near the front entrance of the Henry Ford Museum. From here we walked into the museum and I was surprised what I first saw.

This DC3 was built in 1939 by Douglas which logged more than 12 million miles and was aloft for 83,032 hours nearly nine and a half years. Looking down towards the right I could see the C&O Allegheny Locomotive and headed towards it.

On the way there I passed some of the cars on display.

Here is a race car.

Lamy's Diner.

The Dewitt Clinton replica.

C&O H1 2-6-6-6 1601 was built in 1941.
