Fabulous job on this website. Amazing history. After reading through it, I am very much looking forward to seeing this museum, can’t wait until it opens. Thank you1
I enjoyed reading about and seeing your cars! I also enjoyed hearing about your dedication to the family name to make Mitchell cars part of american history that most of us had never heard of unless we know Lewis Miller…. Thanks Lewis, your passion and dedication is appreciated!

I am the great grandson of John W. Bate who was instrumental in the development of the Mitchell Automobile in the early twentieth century and I am a former resident of Racine Wisconsin. I have a lot of inherited Mitchell memorabilia and would like to talk with knowledgeable people regarding it. I may be reached at 954 383 2686.
I have a old Mitchell Daimler Hood Badge, came from the link when Daimler
tryed to help the Mitchell Company.
Thanks, would you please be willing to send me a picture of it. I don’t have as much info on the early years of the Mitchell Co. as I would like. I am aware of a short history of the two being together.
Please send just a simple I-phone photo to my regular web site,
Lewis, I was looking through some old papers and magazines over the weekend and came across a familiar face. So glad I finally saw the article and caught up with you. I really enjoyed the piece. No wonder you were such a good mechanic and seemed to love what you were doing when you ran the station in Clinton. You and your gang kept several autos running for Mother and me. So very accommodating to us. Jackie Miller’s daughter, Jayne.
Hi Jane: u remember you just like I saw you an hour ago. I loved your mom to death and the two of you were really favorite customers of mine.
I hope you are doing well!

Keep in touch.
Good Day! I saw your collection on the Missouri Life TV program Tuesday evening. My wife Mary and I are interested in coming to Boonville to see you. But we live in Berger, Missouri (the other side of Hermann where she works at the hospital) and the town is surrounded by the mighty Mo river tonite. So it will be awhile before we can come to visit. Save us a place and please direct us to the old restaurant they featured too (was it W&J ?). All our best to you and yours, Dennis and Mary Margaret Rylee
Hi, I’m so sorry for just now getting in touch with you. I dropped my phone in the water a long time ago and lost all of my addresses, passwords, and access to my website!
I’m back in operation now.
Yes we can show you a good time in Boonville. Please call the Boonville Tourism office, 660-882-3967. They do all of the bookings. We ate only open by appointment but will open up practically anytime if you give them notice. Thank You, Lewis
I have allready 30 years an MITCHELL motorcycle of1901/2.I was very pleased to see on the internet that there is a Museum.Do you have such a motorcycle and are there a couple of them in the U.S.A.Have you information about this machine?
I am looking for a missing badge in front of the frame and is there anyone who can help me.
I would like to come once to the U.S.A. and visit your museum.
So far my first writing to you and hopefully I hear something fromyou
how can I post a photo of my machine
Hi John, We need to talk. Please contact me through my personal email address. THIS SITE THAT I HAVE TO USE ON MY WEB SITE IS SO USER UNFRIENDLY!!!
I’ll gladly wait to hear from you. Yes, I have a badge, but they are extremely rare. I have a motorcybadge, and a bicycle badge on my “Wisconsin Wheel Works” Mitchell ladies bicycle. The motorcycle badge is in a display case.
Contact me at,
Anxious to hear from you!
Can you email me some pictures?
If you have a complete Mitchell, you are number 4 in the world!
Take some pictures of it with you camera or better yet with an I-phone and send it to my personal email–firstname.lastname@example.org
If you aren’t sure how to do this, do as I do. Get a teenager, young person or like I do I get my granddaughter to help me! This young generation know how to do all of this hi-tech stuff!
We have remnants of a Mitchell on my grandparents’ farm in Saskatchewan. My grandfather brought it north from Minnesota when the family moved early in the 20th century. The people who knew this car first hand are gone now but, from what I can gather, my grandfather enjoyed ice-racing and it just may have made an occasional run across the border during the prohibition era. My mother once told me she remembered it to be ridiculously fast — with a monocle for a windshield. I suspect there may have been some modifications along the way. Anyway, I am eager to learn more about Mitchells and discover what the rolling chassis we have on the farm may once have been. I also suspect we have parts that could serve a restoration — or maybe we should just make a rat rod out of it? I look forward to hearing from you.
Please reply to my regular email address. This website is so user unfriendly!!!
I’ll be glad to help you all that I can! Sincerely, Lewis.
Has this collection reopened to the public after the pandemic year of 2020?
Yes, call 660-882-3967 for an appointment for a private showing.
