About Katie’s Coffee

Katie’s Coffee House is located next to The Old Brogue at 760 Walker Road, Great Falls, VA 22066. It is an illy café serving “coffee, lattes, teas, breakfast, breakfast sandwiches and fresh baked goods,” according to their website.

The History of Car Shows in the United States

While it wasn’t officially the first car show held in the United States, the 1900 Auto Show at Madison Square Garden is considered to be the “Grandmother of All Auto Shows” according to Wired magazine.

The weeklong event was sponsored by the Automobile Club of America and featured 66 exhibitors and 31 automobiles along with an array of auto accessories. The show also featured “astounding feats of braking and acceleration, and a special ramp was built to demonstrate the hill-climbing prowess of the different cars.”

From Madison Square Garden to Saturdays at Katie’s Cars and Coffee, car shows have always been a popular attraction drawing spectators and exhibitors from all walks of life.
