Ypsilanti to host Hudson Motor Car museum

Ypsilanti — Plans call for the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum to be partially renovated and become the home of the National Hudson Motor Car Company Museum.

The Ann Arbor News reports the partnership was announced this week.

The site of the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum was home to a Hudson dealership from 1933-57 and currently houses a showroom display dedicated to Hudson vehicles.

A partnership with the Hudson Essex Terraplane Historical Society will form the National Hudson Motor Car Company Museum. Bill Nickels, board secretary of the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum, says the project’s vision includes changing displays and a small theater.

A grand opening for the Hudson museum is scheduled for Sept. 21 and will coincide with the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum’s car show at Riverside Park.
