If These Cars Could Talk - ca. 1894 Black
Hear the story of one of the earliest automobiles in America!
The May 2019 Car of the Month is the ca.1894 Black. The museum acquired it with thanks to George Dadakis of Harrison, New York. After driving a neighbor’s 1891 Benz, carriage builder Charles H. Black of Indianapolis, Indiana became interested in building a horseless carriage of his own. The first one was completed in late 1893. Black continued to build the new automobiles from 1897 to 1900, before selling his patents.
