The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles is taking a step from the history of cars into the future by installing electric vehicle charging stations at the museum.

The new chargers will include four Tesla and two universal connectors. They will be installed for use in the museum’s parking lot.

Autumn Shaner, curatorial assistant, said members of the museum board have an interest in electric vehicles and thought bringing in a charging station would be a good way to incorporate the newest technology with the history of electric vehicles.

“It’s the old and the new coming together,” she said.

She noted the museum’s collection includes antique electric vehicles, including a 1919 Detroit Electric Coupe.

Volunteers are working to get the vehicle in running condition in time for a celebratory event July 20 to introduce the new chargers and a special display the museum will have on the history of electric vehicles.

Tesla and Quigley Chevrolet of Bally will be represented at a 3 p.m. ribbon-cutting that day. Tesla will be offering test drives, and Quigley will have a 2018 Chevy Bolt on display.
