HORSE-DRAWN TO HORSEPOWER
This exhibit is open through the summer of 2014
"Horse-Drawn to Horsepower" is an exhibit that offers a look at America's transition from the horse and buggy to the horseless carriage. The exhibit focuses on rural America with artifacts that include horse-drawn vehicles that were common on ranches, along with their motor vehicle replacements.
One of the featured artifacts is a working 1923 Ford Model T “chuck truck,” or motorized chuck wagon. Other artifacts include a wide array of tools and materials related to the Ford Model T, which became a common sight on many ranches in the early 20th century. Rare photographs showing early automobiles at work in rural America will also be on display. The exhibit opens on August 17 and closes in summer 2014.
The National Ranching Heritage Center is a museum and historical park comprised of 48 authentic dwellings and outbuildings from some of history’s most important ranches. Structures on the 16-acre site have been authentically restored and furnished and date from the late 1780s to the 1950s.
