In 1893, St. Louisans glimpsed the first horseless carriage on the streets of their city. Hoping to cash in on a growing industry, eager entrepreneurs quickly formed several automobile companies. Some companies lasted a short time and produced only a handful of cars, while others lasted for years and manufactured thousands of cars. St. Louis became a leader in automotive manufacturing and in the creation of new products and technology.
