"The Gilmore Car Museum began in the early 1960s when Donald S. Gilmore began collection vintage automobiles. We know know that some of the first vehicles in his collection included 1927 Ford Model T, a 1913 Rolls Royce, a 1930 Pierce Arrow. Restoring that classic Pierce-Arrow—which is still on display at the museum—ignited a passion. ... To accommodate his collection, he acquired 90 acres of farmland in southwestern Barry County, Michigan in a small town off of Gull Lake known as Hickory Corners. He also purchased several historic barns, had them dismantled, and moved to the site—a stroke of inspiration that gives our museum its unique character. It was Genevieve who came up with the idea of turning the collection into a museum, which would allow future generations access to Donald’s one-of-a-kind collection. The Genevieve and Donald S. Gilmore established a non-profit foundation and opened the museum to the public for the first time on Sunday, July 31, 1966."
