The Village Garage was built in 2011. A fundraiser was launched after Parker Wickham donated a 1926 Ford Model T truck to the council in 2010. The truck was originally from the Fleet Farm in Cutchogue. Paul and Gary Winters of Southold bought the truck from the Fleet family and restored it in the mid 1970s. The truck is now permanently housed, along with a 1930 Ford model A, period petromobila and much more in the garage museum. It is open to the public along with the other historic buildings on the Village Green in Cutchogue.
Admission is free. Hours 10-4 -Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from mid June 23 until Labor Day. Mark your calendars; on October 20 the council will be hosting an antique car show and period dress on the green, called “Back in Time before 1949.” Over 100 vintage cars and trucks are expected. Complete info for the car show and all council events is on their website http://www.cutchoguenewsuffolkhistory.org/
