Planes, Street Cars, & Automobiles
A Tiny tin car, open-air trolley, single-passenger jet, a red caboose or a horse-drawn hearse straight out of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol are a few of the vehicles in the Ohio History Connection’s Transportation collection. This collection contains examples of vehicles Ohioans used for work and play. Sites like the National Road Museum
focus on how people traveled our early highways, while the Armstrong Air and Space Museum
’s Gemini capsule shows how Ohioans explored outer space.
