  • This is a wonderful tribute to the Hudson Automobiles, carefully curated and restored by the Museum's namesake, who sadly passed away in 2016. Needless to say, being able to so easily view, from all sides these magnificent restorations is awesome! And If interested, at least one of his restorations is also in the Gilmore Auto Museum as well. Pictures are encouraged! It would be terribly sad if the Shipshewanna community would ever lose this gem .. it IS THE REASON I went here to tour in the first place!
  • Awesome cars, but some were decorated with Halloween decorations. I would rather have seen the cars respected and not decorated. Still a great visit and I would recommend if you are a classic car enthusiast.
