LANSING, MI — Michigan Humanities announced the distribution of $203,101 in grants to 16 Michigan organizations in support of public humanities programming.
The Gilmore Car Museum was awarded $3,850 for the educational program titled Birth of the Automobile: Horse-drawn Buggy to Horseless Carriage.
The educational department will work with a small team of participants, both on site and at select schools, to transform a horse-drawn buggy into a gasoline-powered horseless carriage which resembles a 1909 Holsman High Wheel motor buggy. The project results will be shared with students across Michigan.
