Nearly two decades ago, we began looking for answers to questions about America’s early western vehicle industry. From wagons to coaches and so much more, the research quickly snowballed. Today, after years of endless digging and sharing findings with thousands of folks the world over, those initial areas of curiosity have helped built a strong archive of authoritative details.
As we begin our 18th year of vehicle research, evaluations and conservation, it’s clear that we still haven’t scratched the surface on what was a massive industry during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Much of what we have learned, though, has already helped museums, archeologists, historians, businesses, collectors, writers and enthusiasts the world over. As we continue in our quest to help locate and preserve the rarest elements of America’s wood-wheeled history, we encourage your feedback and look forward to hearing from you.
