Early transportation, in particular the
rise of the automobile, transformed
Florida − its landscape, its reach, its
population and ultimately its history.
The Elliott Museum’s collection of early
motor vehicles − assembled by founder
Harmon Elliott − represents the best of
American ingenuity − telling the story
of invention, competition, mobility and
controversy. The new Elliott Museum has
taken its initial collection and
expanded it, exponentially. Through the
generosity of an anonymous donor, the
new Elliott museum will feature over 50
commercial vehicles, many that have
never before been viewed in public.
