From Devil Wagons to Mud Larks

In 1903 the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers sponsored an 800-mile endurance run from Weehawken, NJ to Pittsburgh, PA. Thirty-four competing automobiles departed on October 7, 1903 and traveled up the Hudson Valley and then through the Catskill Mountains. Reaching Delhi on the second day in a driving rain, they continued on through Franklin and then to Binghamton and beyond.
