Two historic autos turned 100 this year, and Auburn Heights state park held a special 100th birthday party on June 5th for the occasion. Located in Yorklyn, Auburn Heights Preserve manages the Tommy Marshall family home and estate, which includes the largest collection of operational steam cars in the world. This year two automobiles at Auburn Heights turn 100: the 1916 Stanley Touring Model 725 and the 1916 Rauch and Lang Electric Car, which was designed by a carriage-making company (and in fact resembles a carriage) and holds 12 enormous batteries.
Families with young children were given rides aboard several of the historic cars around the property and train rides. Kids also made and decorated birthday hats, enjoyed birthday cake and also watched with fascination the 80-year-old electric model train display inside the antique car barn.
