In honor of #BlackHistoryMonth we are highlighting #AfricanAmericans who have a connection to Springfield or are featured in our collections. Marshall W. Taylor was a cyclist at the turn of the century—well, he wasn’t just any cyclist, he was “The Black Cyclone”—a record-breaking champion the world over and a favorite of Teddy Roosevelt. He won his first race—a ten-miler—when he was just 13 years old and continued to win again and again, breaking time records by minutes. Nicknamed “Major” from his time attracting business to an Indianapolis bike shop by doing bicycle tricks while wearing a military uniform, Taylor moved east to Worcester where he perceived the people to be friendlier to African American cyclists competing alongside white cyclists. Taylor met and became friends with Oscar Hedstrom, who was also a bicycle racer and a designer of pacing bikes, before he designed the Indian Motocycle in 1901 and joined George Hendee right here in Springfield. Hedstrom and Taylor competed together in the famous bicycle races held at Hampden Park in Springfield during the 1890s, the heyday of bicycle racing. . #atthemuseums #bicycle #earlybicycles #bicycleracing #cyclist #cyclists #blackcysclists #marshallwtaylor #oscarhedstrom #georgehendee #indianmotocycle #indianmotorcycle #theblackcyclone #teddyroosevelt

Sinceramente no soy fanático de las 🏍 aunque sí del diseño y las marcas. Finalizada mi jornada, investigué sobre esta legendaria (Indian) y me topé con este #merchandising que publicaron en un foro y quedé 😍 . . Un poco de DATA a tener en cuenta: La @indianmotorcycle fue fundada por #GeorgeHendee y #OscarHedstrom en Springfield, en 1901, dos años antes que su rival, la legendaria @harleydavidson .

Hilltop Farm. - George M. Hendee, co-founder of @indianmotorcycle, developed Hilltop Farm in the early 20th century as a country estate and gentleman's farm. - By the mid-1920s, the farm contained nearly 500 acres. - Constructed in 1914, this building is a massive, two-story, Colonial Revival-style barn with two, cylindrical silos flanking the central high drive entrance. - In retirement, Hendee raised a prized herd of Guernsey cows known as Hilltop Butterfats which became well-known throughout the cattle breeding industry. - Today, the property and barn are managed by the nonprofit group, Friends of the Farm at Hilltop, Inc. - #fall #autumn #farm #farming #agriculture #dairy #barn #dairybarn #silo #foliage #guernsey #cow #cattle #butterfat #historic #preservation #georgehendee #hendee #indianmotorcycle #motorcycle #hilltopfarm #suffield #connecticut
