WALCOTT, Iowa — Dirt work has begun for Iowa 80’s new trucking museum, which will be called the Trucking Hall of Fame.
The 21,600-square-foot museum will have room to display 27 trucks at one time with the capacity to store other trucks that are not being shown, and will account for the potential to grow.
It will feature a gift shop, truck restoration experts and a sidewalk leading from the truck parking lot to the museum for easy access for drivers. Delia Moon Meier, daughter of Bill Moon who passed away in 1992, says her father loved the trucking industry.
“Over the years he collected trucks of all sorts. Antique trucks, toy trucks and all sorts of memorabilia. This is going to be a great way for us to share that with others interested in trucking and its history,” she says.
The Moon family continues to add to the collection and it will be the main source for the museum.
Details for the museum have yet to be worked out, however, the grand opening is set for 2005.
