The American Farm Wagon was a general utility freight vehicle used for different services from the 1800’s into the mid 1900’s. Few vehicles were of greater significance than the Farm Wagon in an era when small farms played an important role in America’s economy. Its design was both simple and utilitarian, making it sturdy enough for heavy loads over rural roads, and dependable enough for everyday use. It was the “pick-up truck” of its day.
