Notice anything missing from this picture?

Yes, that's right the North Gates and the archway are gone!

The good news is that they are being restored and will be returned soon. After hanging in place for 91 years they have gone out of alignment and suffered some significant corrosion. We're hoping they'll be back in time for the Annual Fall Open House on Sunday, October 20th.

Thanks to Mike Stevens and crew of Paint Star for getting this temporary fencing painted quickly for us, and Wendy of St. Clair Greenhouse & Florist for delivering some beautiful plants and flowers to help decorate the area.

The Packard Motor Car Foundation was awarded a grant from the Americana Foundation for this project. We'll be fundraising for the South gates very soon.

My biggest fear is that when I die, my wife will sell all my "toys" at the price I told her I paid for them.
Ain't no such thing as a lonely widow that inherited a barn full of old cars
