Ways to Support
The Springfield to Boston Education Foundation is looking to accept collector cars. Our direct mission is the preservation of the ‘Made in New England Automobiles’ but our true delight is the ‘Springfield built Rolls Royce’.
Because of the rich history in Springfield, Massachusetts, home of the Duryea, Indian Motorcycle and of course the Springfield Rolls Royce, we want to preserve and promote the history of the brand for generations to come. With MGM Casino having begun the revitalization of Springfield, and the amazing 10 million-dollar Lyman and Merrie Wood History Museum completed in 2010, this will be a great place to show off the ‘Made in New England Automobiles’.
Our antiques will receive only the best care:
- We have immediate local climate-controlled storage
- During the winter months the cars will be on display in the Lyman and Merrie Wood History Museum
- During the summer months the cars will reside in a service area so they can be on hand for our staff, students and events. Events will touch on all age ranges and learning levels:
- Elementary School: luncheons and rides home
- High School: education about repairing and driving our antique vehicles
- Vocational Schools and Universities: education about maintenance, repair, transport and show prep
- Civic Events: promote the Springfield Rolls Royce and the ‘Classic to Kids’ Program
As we continue to celebrate the pioneer era of transportation The Springfield to Boston Education Foundation is actively looking to accept collector cars to further our mission.
With the passion of like-minded individuals, it is our responsibility to inspire and educate our youth to keep the collector car hobby alive.
