Packard Proving Grounds

May 4 2013 | 10:00am to May 5 2013 | 11:55am

Dedicated in 1927, the buildings at the Proving Grounds in Utica were designed by Albert Kahn, and the oval test track was so well-engineered that drivers could travel around the banked curves in excess of 100 mph without holding the steering wheel. Come explore the lodge building and garage as you learn about the many ways the grounds have been used throughout their history.
