Word comes to us, by the institution’s announcement, that the Golden Age of Trucking Museum in Middlebury, Connecticut, will close at the end of this month. According to an e-mail disseminated by director Kathleen Jones, the collection will close next Tuesday, July 20th, following a cruise-night, unless a new funding source is found between now and then.
The museum opened in 2002, first envisioned by Jones’s late father, Richard Guerrera, a lifelong trucker and operator, and first funded by his widow. Jones didn’t immediately respond to our e-mail asking what will happen to the trucks on display. However, she told the Waterbury Republican American in an account published last week that a 2009 effort to raise $100,000 only achieved 20 percent of its goal. Want to be a savior?
