Just in time for the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival and the busiest weekend in Auburn, Indiana, Horizon Bank made a generous donation to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. Executive Director & CEO Brandon J. Anderson said, “We are so grateful for the support and partnership that we enjoy with Horizon Bank.” Mr. Anderson shared that the museum is beginning to secure funds for a preservation and restoration capital campaign that will include restoring the Showroom to its original 1930 appearance including multichromatic colors, decorative finishes, and restored terrazzo floors, all bringing back the original Art Deco splendor. “This gift will support the preservation of our National Historic Landmark building.”

Anderson, and local leader and Museum Trustee, Terry Hines, with the second of three $25,000 checks to benefit the capital campaign and restoration project.
