|Inside the Kenosha History Center|
I started with the Rambler Legacy Gallery, the largest of the museum, and the one that highlights Kenosha's relationship with the automobile. The Thomas B. Jeffrey Company started it all back in 1902 until the company was sold to Nash Motors in 1916, and later combined it with the Hudson Motor Car Company creating what is widely known as the American Motors Corporation (AMC) in 1957 (ironically lead by George Romney, former Presidential candidate Mitt's father). Their most famous car was the Rambler, featured throughout the museum.

I certainly enjoy history museum's like the Kenosha History Center; those that offer a unique and one-of-a-kind story with information that I have not seen or read about elsewhere. The museum also provided a solid overview of Kenosha and set the stage for all the other museums & sites I would see over the coming days. Especially for the price (FREE!) I'd highly recommend a visit!
