Object Name:
Spindle Seat Fringe Top Surrey
Description:
Henney Buggy Co in Freeport Illinois built this delicate spindle seat carriage. It has a standing fringe top to provide shade and shelter for the passengers. Although the Surrey borrowed its name from a cart used in the County of Surrey, England, it is an American carriage built for American families, and it probably did more to unite scattered communities and families into a great nation of neighbors and friends than any other carriage or wagon.

This Fringe Top Surrey was built by the Henney Buggy Company in Freeport, Illinois.
