“We’re incredibly excited to welcome our friends to see and experience Hamilton,” said Tom and Linda Moorehead, local Model T Ford Club members. “The Butler County Visitors Bureau and the City of Hamilton have shown us unmeasurable hospitality over the years. It only made sense to have this event in our community and showcase our rich history, incredible local businesses, and scenic beauty to the Model T community,” said BJ Miller, 65th Model T Tour Organizer.
“What an incredible group to welcome to Hamilton, Ohio,” said Mark Hecquet, President & CEO of the Butler County Visitors Bureau. “The historic significance of the Model T along with the incredible backdrop of Spooky Nook Champion Mill will unite two important pieces of history during the 65th Model T Tour.
