Shipshewana Walldogs, Part Eight: Hudsons

In my continuing series on the sixteen murals done by the Walldogs group in Shipshewana in 2014, this mural is the only one to be found indoors.  It can be seen in the lobby of the Hostetler Hudson Museum on State Route 5 (the main north-south street in Shipshewana).  It shows a wagon and an automobile on the streets of downtown Shipshewana in the early 1900s.

The Hudson automobile was never made in Shipshewana, but the finest collection of Hudsons in the world can be found there.  This is because of an Amish boy who grew up to be a wealthy inventor and a dedicated collector of Hudsons. 

I wrote more about Mr. Hostetler and the museum in an earlier post, here
