History of the Bantam Jeep

The American Bantam Car Company invented, developed and produced one of the most famous vehicles in the world – the jeep. It all happened here in Butler, Pa. Don’t miss seeing the exhibit about the history of the Bantam jeep which will be on display at the Fairgrounds along with five of the six vehicles produced in Butler. Make sure you stop by the World War II encampment and see more than 20 original jeeps presented by the First Frontier Mechanized Cavalry.
