The "Vermont"

The "Vermont"

Models of H. Nelson Jackson and dog Bud in front of their Winton touring car "Vermont". In 1903, H. Nelson Jackson and Sewall K. Crocker completed the first motor trip across the United States in this car, which Jackson named for his home state. It is displayed with reproductions of supplies and equipment that the men carried. They often used a block and tackle to pull the car out of mud holes. When the Winton needed repairs, they telegraphed the factory for parts and awaited delivery by railroad.
