Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

The wealthy Oak Park banker John Farson had a passion for fine horses, but he eagerly adopted cars when they became available in the early 20th century. By 1904, Farson and his family had four cars; by 1906, Farson was the president of the American Auto Association.

Explore Farson's love of the automobile in this "Preservation in Person" lecture presented by Pleasant Home Foundation. Rob Buerglener, a teacher and historian of transportation and technology, has lectured widely and published articles on the dawn of the automobile age at the turn of the 20th century.
