Nineteenth-Century Farm Wagon
about 1860

In service for 85 years
Henry Beckley, a master blacksmith from St. Clairsville, PA, built this farm wagon about 1860. It remained in service for 85 years. For part of that period, the Dibert family of Bedford County used it to carry produce to market and to take supplies back to their farm. Farm wagons like this one were among the most common horse-drawn vehicles in the United States during the 1800s and early 1900s.

Notes
Wood, iron
Henry Beckley (1827-1907)
