Cortland County Celebrates 20th Annual Brockway Truck Show

Bridge Street

Main Street in Cortland will be lined with trucks, celebrating a proud part of its history where some of the finest trucks in the world were built.

The Brockway name has been synonymous with Cortland for over 100 years.

 “It meant jobs for a lot of people, it was the pride of Cortland County,” says original committee member Shirley Randolph.

These trucks made in Cortland were not simply made from an assembly line, but were rather finely built trucks made to order. Truck collectors have come from all over the world to purchase Brockway’s trucks.

Former president of the CNY Living History Center Hugh Riehlman, who has remodeled and rebuilt a Brockway truck in the past, says he does it for the fun and passion of working with trucks.

“I get a real charge out of bringing things back to life,” says Riehlman.

The CNY Living History Center focuses on preserving the memories of community members who worked to make Cortland County what it is today.

“We think we’ve done a pretty good job of preserving those memories,” says Kevin Walsh, current president of the CNY Living History Center.

The history center is hoping for a record response this year as the show celebrates its 20th anniversary. For more information, visit BrockwayTrucks.org.
