In 1909, Alice Ramsey left New York City in a 1909 Maxwell DA and became the first woman to make the transcontinental journey from New York to California. She and her all-female team accomplished this impressive feat just six years after the first successful male cross-country drive, making headlines and cementing their place in history.
One hundred years later, Emily Anderson commemorated this historic event by recreating the 3800-mile, cross-country voyage in her own restored 1909 Maxwell. Join us as Emily Anderson shares both her and Alice’s stories and see the 1909 Maxwell that made the journey!
