Skyline Farm Carriage Museum’s current winter exhibit “200 Years of Runners & Wheels: Celebrating Maine's Bicentennial” highlights vehicles used circa 1820 in Maine. It is rare that a museum would have one vehicle 200 years old or older; however, Skyline has many, including three four-wheeled Pleasure and Comfort Waggons (old spelling), a two-wheeled doctor’s Riding Chair used in Cornish, Maine, and a Boston Chaise. Also featured are many early sleighs including the Rudyard Kipling rattan sleigh, early Albany & Portland styles, Rural Mail, Booby Hut, Hearses, Doctors, and a School Bus.

 

The museum, located at 95 The Lane, North Yarmouth, is open for public viewing on Sundays, from February 23–March 29, 1-4 p.m. or by appointment. Free admission; donations are appreciated. Dress warmly as the museum is not heated.
