We love sharing our carriage collection with groups!
for groups of all ages & sizes!
Tours can be tailored to accommodate any group. As you stroll among the beautifully restored vehicles, your tour guide will explain not only carriage history but also life in the 1890s. Did you know traffic congestion was a real problem in the horse-drawn era? Some of the first horseless carriages were actually advertised as the “solution to pollution.” I’ll bet you can imagine why!
school groups, family groups & more
Our tours for students are educational, fun and a learning experience, and we have tailored school tours for almost every age group. Students learn about the carriages, their manufacturing history, their usage and the history of the horse-drawn transportation era. In our 1890 schoolhouse, we talk about the one-room classroom and rules for behavior. We demonstrate how wooden wheels were made. The opportunity to make butter or corn husk dolls can be provided, and students always enjoy climbing aboard our Three Spring Democrat Wagon for a fun group picture!
