Tom Ricker, a local blacksmith and farrier, leads the wagon restoration project. With his many years of experience Tom has a great store of knowledge related to all phases of wagon building and restoration.
Over the years, the museum has acquired several horse drawn wagons, buggies and carts. These are in various stages of repair and need cleaning, painting and general restoration to bring them up to their original condition.
The wagon restoration work takes place at Tom’s shop and usually meets for a couple of hours once a week. No prior experience is required and all help, whether it is labor, material or financial, will be greatly appreciated. This is a great opportunity to learn and to contribute to the museum.
