Boyertown, PA – The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles has taken a giant step into the future by installing electric vehicle charging stations for our visitors to utilize. These new chargers — four Tesla and two universal connectors — will be installed for use in the Museum’s parking lot across from the main entrance along South Walnut Street.
To celebrate, the Boyertown Museum will hold a ribbon cutting for the new electric vehicle chargers on Friday, July 20 at 3pm. Both Tesla and Quigley Chevrolet will be on hand at the ribbon cutting.
Tesla will be offering test drives and Quigley will have a 2018 Bolt on display. Museum volunteers are also currently working on getting the 1919 Detroit Electric Coupe in running condition as a nod to our country’s long history of electric vehicle innovation and design. Refreshments will be available and the Museum gallery will be open and feature a special display on electric vehicle history.
