Long Description:
Discover an ear when “horsepower” really meant “powered by horses”, when horse-drawn vehicles ruled the roads and building them required talent and craftsmanship.

At the Campbell Carriage Factory Museum visitors see how it all was done. The fine old post-and-beam structure, built by the 1840’s, is a designated Provincial heritage site. There, from 1855 to 1951, the Campbell family of Sackville, NB produced top quality buggies, wagons and sleighs for generations of Maritimers.

During a visit, you’ll learn how wheelwrights, joiners and other skilled workers used traditional methods to produce 45-60 vehicles a year. See authentic tools and pattern moulds on display. Visitors will gain new insight into pre-industrial activity of a bygone era.
Theme:
19th century horse-and-buggy transportation methods; dyking and haying practices on the Tantramar marshes; Acadian and Anglophone settlement history.
