Lecture – Larz and Isabel Anderson’s Automobile Collection

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

6 p.m.

Free admission; no reservations required


Join us at the American Revolution Institute of the Society of the Cincinnati for a lecture on local couple Larz and Isabel Anderson’s car collection. The Andersons were enthusiastic motorists and enjoyed collecting automobiles. Their home on Massachusetts Avenue includes murals of their favorite driving routes through the D.C. area. Sheldon Steele, executive director of the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, Mass., shares the history of the Andersons’ car collecting, a hobby that began with an 1899 Winton Runabout and grew to a collection of thirty-two cars over forty-nine years.


The presentation will be held at the headquarters for the Society of the Cincinnati, Anderson House, located at 2118 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Washington, D.C.  It will last approximately 45 minutes with time for questions at the end. This program is held in celebration of Anderson House’s 112th birthday
