This is one of two sheep wagons. This wagon required little restoration, as it had been well preserved by a covering that was put over it many years ago. Contents are authentic, including the bed (but with modern mattress), stove, benches, pull-out table, track lamp, shelf, and towel racks. End walls originally were canvas, but Greg replaced with wood because he liked the way it looked.
Greg Hisey: "There's a trunk on the back on the outside. This one had doors here (under the bed) and they went to the back storage under the bed. Usually the dog slept under the bed, your saddle went in the trunk. That window has a maker's stamp on the inside of it. You can't see it installed, but when I took it out to do it, it actually has the woodworker maker's stamp. Somebody took a lot of care with this wagon. It's quarter inch glass. They're pretty sturdy old vessels."
