The Packards Came to Seminary Ridge

Just Because It’s Fun!

In late July, the Seminary campus was host to a pack of Packard automobiles, and their several hundred owners and admirers. More than 100 of the restored cars manufactured throughout the now-defunct Packard Motor company’s existence, from 1899-1958, graced the lawns up and down Seminary Ridge. Our staff worked closely with event organizers to provide a safe and hospitable climate for the day’s events. Following the “concours,” which included judges rendering prizes to the best-restored vehicles in pristine condition, the Seminary received a letter from the Packard Club of America glowing in its appreciation for our hospitality.
