#219: Kemp Auto Museum

There's a lot of people who are extreme car enthusiasts - but unfortunately, I myself, am not one. To me, a car is a car! But I know everyone will disagree with me. I don't care if its a 1998 Ford Ranger or a 1957 Chevy.

  • At least 40 of the cars were from the late Fred Kemp, Sr.'s auto collection (they were all donated to the museum in 2004 after his passing).
  • Home of the rarest cars in the world, including the Mercedes Benz!
  • The oldest car in the museum dates back to 1886 (the car built by Karl Benz).
  • Most of the cars on display are hand-crafted luxury vehicles, but they tell the story about how they revolutionized transportation.
  • Special events are also held here, including retirement/corporate parties....even weddings!
