The Barker Mansion’s new permanent exhibit.
Opening December 2, 2022
The Haskell & Barker Car Company and The Legacy of Freight exhibit will take you through Michigan City from the 1830’s to the early 1900’s. The exhibit is a tribute to the Haskell & Barker freight car factory and its workers through state-of-the-art visual displays. A highlight of the exhibit features a spectacular scale model of the Haskell & Barker factory designed and created by students from Purdue Northwest’s College of Technology.
Join us at the revolutionary Haskell & Barker factory as we embark on the journey of a boxcar and explore the city where it all started.
