Before Detroit became the face of the automotive history, Jackson ruled the automobile world. From 1901 to 1954, Jackson’s twenty-five car manufacturers built over ten thousand cars! Eighteen Jackson made cars can be seen today at the Ye Ole Carriage Shop Museum. The museum also features many other classic and historical cars and seven additional rooms housing dozens of impressive collections. You can find Coca-Cola memorabilia, motorcycles, model airplanes, gas pumps, kids peddle cars, several iconic former Jackson area business exhibits, an old-fashion soda shop display and much more.
Tours are available by appointment only and donations are graciously accepted. This is a great tour for school classes, senior groups, family gatherings, or other groups of ten or more!
