"My husband and I went to the Packard Museum (looking at automobiles and motorcycles) today....we had the whole museum to ourselves (it opened at 12 noon). I am more interested in the Packard brothers and their lives, especially their houses in different places in New York. There are pictures of th..."e houses (mansions in question) at this museum....but I would have liked to read more about the construction of the mansion at the Chautauqua Institution that was built in 1915 by W.D. Packard with very thick brick and cement walls and was very fire-proofed because of his fear of dying in a fire. I heard that he went blind toward the end of his life....but I can't verify the information....which I would like to have. I also couldn't find much information about this house except when it was up for sale a few times and what it sold for and to who it was sold.
As for the cars....I think I found 2 that actually belonged to the museum from donations....the rest of the cars and motorcycles ...
