10 Acre Farm Wagon with Hay Flats and Tobacco Ladders
This wagon was used on small farms as a wagon for hauling all sorts of goods and had two extra bodies that were used for hauling fresh cut tobacco that had been speared onto lathe or to bring in hay from the fields. It is modeled after a wagon built by A.S. Hersh of New Danville, PA in the late 1800’s. The original wagon is on display at the Conestoga Area Historical Association museum in Conestoga, PA.
