Object Name:
Bar Harbor Buckboard
Description:
This buckboard is in natural wood finish with nice green tufted seat cushions which are trimmed in nice nickel arm rest. The two rear seats are removable in order to haul longer objects. The spring or suspension for this buggy is mostly in the long floor boards extending from the front axle to the rear axle. The pole end cap is nickel as well as the rein rail across the front dash. The buckboard was a very utilitarian vehicle around the 19th century working settlement, be it farm, mine or timber camp sometimes used as sporting vehicles used for hunting expedition. This Bar Harbor buckboard was usually owner driven. Its twentieth century equivalent would be a pick-up truck. Many settlers who made their way west would refit their wagons into buckboards.
