Visiting Elkhorn - Manitoba Antique Auto Museum

             

The Manitoba Antique Automobile Museum is a non profit organization incorporated with a view to establishing an automobile museum in the community of Elkhorn.  The beginning came about through Mr. Isaac Clarkson, a farmer living five miles east of Elkhorn, who had been collecting automobiles since 1946.  
As Mr. Clarkson's main wish was to have his collection remain in Manitoba, he deeded the entire collection in perpetuity to the Village of Elkhorn as represented in the Manitoba Automobile Museum Foundation, a non-profit organization incorporated under Manitoba Bill No. 11 which was given Royal Assent on March 30, 1961.  The collection has continued to grow.

Some of the Highlights of this Collection are the 1909 Hupmobile, The Ford Model -T Collection, a 1913 Case Model 30 Touring Car, The McLaughlin Collection and the 1930 Marmon.

The collection remains today along with a multitude of historical items including the Archie School House, tools, tractors, housewares, toys, and more.  The Elkhorn Restoration Club has over the years worked to add buildings to the Museum site.  There is a pioneer home and the Kirkella Church is the newest addition.  Plans are in the works to restore the Service Station building.
