The JEM Car Museum, located along Route 443 in West Penn Township, officially opened. The museum, a creation of John E. Morgan, consists of a collection of 30 cars including a 1912 Model T Ford Brass. The collection is estimated at $1.5 million. He said more cars are expected to be added, which will boost the value to in excess of $2 million. Most of the cars belong to Morgan, although there are a few who are owned by friends. Morgan said he traveled around the country purchasing the cars.
