The Letter W: Wagon Shop

This shop utilized the talents of wheelwright, blacksmith and wagon maker to fashion the horse-drawn vehicles that were used by the early settlers.  The Peterson Wagon Shop from the Town of Whitewater, Walsworth County, displays an exterior ramp commonly used to facilitate the removal of products assembled on the second floor.

  4. I’m guessing kids went down that “ramp” a few times – especially with some ice and snow on it. I like the way this looks with the white frame.

  6. Hi Lois,
    I’m with Giseled on this one, I can see kids having a ball going down that ramp. Love your Office desk. Have a great day!

  8. I’d like to think that this was where they launched each new wagon as some sort of final roadworthy test….on a lighter note I do like the look of the light in this pic, sort of washed out but still vibrant.

    Boy, this sure has a bright midwestern summer’s day feel to it. So interesting to know this building still stands, and was a factory of sorts for the wagons sent west.

    I like the processing that allows the building to stand out from the surroundings.
