July, 2015: Canyon City, Oregon
Ox Bow Wagons and Coaches, as we drive into Canyon City, is the place to order your custom-made replica of a stage coach, chuck wagon, or carriage. It’s also jam packed with harnesses, hardware, antique farm equipment, yard art from life-size pigs to gaudy giant dragon flies, and a great deal else.
The building, with steep steps and uneven floors, was not accessible to me, but Skus walked through the building which is crammed with museum-quality farm wagons, surreys, and accompanying paraphernalia. The web site shows the collections well, and the prices for custom made horse-drawn vehicles seem surprisingly reasonable to us, considering the craftsmanship involved.
