More changes are happening inside the Hastings Museum. On the lower level, you’ll find our curators are currently working on adding more fascinating information on our “Traveling in Style” collection, and how these modes of transportation impacted life in and around Hastings.
For example, you may have wondered about the bright orange Ford Pinto wagon with “HHS” painted on the side. That car was modified and raced by Hastings High School students, and the interesting story behind it will be unfolded soon. Another example is the 1912 Rauch & Lang electric car. That’s right, electric. It could go 100 miles per charge on it’s 1000 pounds of batteries providing 80 volts of power. It was extremely popular with women, available with fancy interiors.
Please pardon our mess as you walk through our “Traveling in Style” exhibit while it is under construction. It will be completed soon!
