Pan Car collectible historical ornament

The Stearns History Museum & Research Center announces the release of its second annual limited edition collectible ornament featuring the 1919 Pan Car. The Pan Car was produced by the Pan Motor Company in St. Cloud between 1917 and 1919. Approximately 750 were produced by automobile entrepreneur Samuel Pandolfo before the company closed in 1919 when Pandolfo was sent to prison for mail fraud. This bulb is the second of an annual limited edition collectible ornament series depicting a different Stearns County landmark each year.

All proceeds from the sale of the ornaments will directly fund the Museum's education programs. Only 100 ornaments have been created and are available for purchase in the Museum Store for $15.95 plus sales tax. The glass ornaments, done in red with silver accents, will make great gifts for friends and family, as well as for yourself!

Store hours are Monday-Friday 9-5, Saturday 10-5, and Sunday 12 noon - 5.

The Stearns History Museum Store is located at 235 33rd Avenue South in St. Cloud.
