Airstream Lore Displayed in Hoosier Exhibit
A display at the LaPorte County Historical Society Museum in northwest Indiana is featuring the history of the Airstream trailer through photographs, as well as the history of the Midwest Unit of the Airstream Travel Trailer Club, according to the South Bend Tribune.
Photographs, scrapbooks, banners, jackets, flags and other memorabilia will be displayed through April.
The Midwest Unit of the Airstream Travel Trailer Club, known as Wally Byam Caravan Club International, was founded in Michigan City in 1957. Named for the inventor of the Airstream travel trailer, the unit went on to include nine states in the Midwest, according to a news release.
Club members proudly toured the country together in their shiny streamlined travel trailers, made of aluminum, for many years until the unit disbanded in 2007.
The museum, at 2405 Indiana Ave., is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
