The Terrill Auto Museum, DeLeon, Texas

This may be the best remaining public auto museum in Texas since the close of Dick's Garage Museum. Just over a dozen cars, the oldest is  Howard Coffin's 1901 steam carriage. Henry Ford bought it and later donated it to the Smithsonian. I do not yet know how it ended up in DeLeon, Texas.

There's a pretty little Buick Model 10 Toy Tonneau and my favorite, a Crow-Elkhart Cloverlear Roadster.

No theme, this is just the collection of one man's car interest in a little (not small... little) mid-Texas town. De Leon is between Dallas and Abilene, about two hours west of Ft. Worth. Keep the hobby vital, take a friend to visit.
