The Studebaker brothers wrote automobile history


In the mid 19th century, a couple of brothers owned and operated a blacksmith shop in South Bend. Not a particularly interesting fact, until you find out that those brothers were named Clement and Henry Studebaker. Eventually, the Studebakers made wagons for the U.S. Army, and became the only manufacturer to successfully make the transition from horse-drawn to gasoline-powered vehicles. The Studebaker National Museum in South Bend displays 100+ years of Studebaker history. Among the vehicles on display: the carriage President Lincoln rode in the night he was assassinated.
