The Fred M. Kemp Foundation is dedicated to its mission of education, preservation and restoration of the more than 30 historically significant automobiles housed in the Museum.
The Kemp Auto Museum displays historically significant and artistically inspired automobiles from the very earliest to the contemporary for public enjoyment and educational enrichment.
The Kemp collection includes rare and vintage European automobiles from the turn of the century to modern day. Home to one of North America's finest private collections of Mercedes Benz ever displayed in one location; the Kemp Auto Museum exhibition was 30 year process that began when our Fred M. Kemp, Sr. purchased his first Mercedes Benz.
Kemp spent many years researching and acquiring the 40+ rare and classic automobiles currently found in our collection and in 2004, after his passing, he donated his collection to the museum for exhibition and education. Today, the Kemp Auto Museum displays automobiles from all over the world, each carefully selected and artfully displayed in our gallery for our visitors to learn from and enjoy.
