Conestoga Wagon

Description: Hundreds of years ago, travelers depended on wagons and carriages just as we depend on our cars today. Made in Pennsylvania about 1803, this wagon hauled farm produce or machinery. As pioneers moved west, families used wagons like this one to move all of their family belongings and tools west of the Appalachian Mountains.
