Bremer County Historical Society and Museum (BCHS) is celebrating the 160th Birthday of the museum’s building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. What better way to celebrate and learn about Bremer County’s past and local culture than by presenting its second season of “Cruising Through History.” Two communities, Sumner and Denver, have teamed with BCHS to entertain cruisers this summer and fall.

The concept of having a combined classic car cruise with historical presentations within Bremer County was the brainchild of Barb Lovejoy-Hess and Gary Emkes, a Waverly couple. Both life-long residents of Bremer County, they enjoy history and have been involved in several classic car organizations, attending many Kaiser-Fraser regional and international conventions held in the United States. They have also regularly participated in various events and car shows locally and within Iowa the past few years.
