Skyline Farm Carriage Museum: Ladies and Gentlemen - June 30th

posted May 29, 2019, 1:23 PM by Tammy Tarling

Skyline Farm Carriage Museum’s current exhibit “Ladies and Gentlemen” shows how horse-drawn vehicles were designed and built specifically to match various sizes, classes and genders of their occupants. This exhibit shows the “finer” lighter vehicles which were generally built for women and the “bulkier” heavier ones for men. As you walk through the exhibit, you can have fun guessing who the vehicle was originally built for, and the answers are on each podium.


“Ladies and Gentlemen” also highlights the Boston chaise and three new Studebaker vehicles added to our collection: a lovely parasol top Basket Phaeton and two dusty road water sprinkler wagons.

 

New collections of bridle rosettes and bog/marsh and lawn shoes (think summer snowshoes) are on display, too.

 

The museum, located at 95 The Lane, North Yarmouth, is open for public viewing on Sundays through June 30, 1-4 p.m. or by appointment. Free admission; donations are appreciated.
