Sketch of a freight wagon. This is a replica of one of the wagons used for nearly six decades on the Santa Fe Trail. They are a lot bigger than they look. The bottom of the fabric canopy is nearly 6 feet off of the ground. The top of the back hoop is 2 feet taller than a basketball goal. (basketball goals are 10ft tall) On the Santa Fe Trail, these wagons were mostly pulled by oxen - and a wagon of this size would require eight to twelve. The average freight wagon carried 3 tons. The big ones carried upwards of 5+ tons each. (To put that into perspective, when my full-sized Chevrolet pickup is loaded to capacity with rocks, the whole thing - truck and its load - only weighs 3 tons. So one of the smaller small freight wagons could have carried the weight of my pickup truck -- with its bed loaded to capacity -- across the worst dirt roads you can imagine all the way from Missouri to Santa Fe, New Mexico. The larger wagons could have carried nearly twice that.) These differ from the smaller wagons used by settlers (mostly farm wagons converted to prairie schooners by adding a fabric top). Farm wagons had a seat in front where the settlers would sit to drive the teams. The person or family driving the wagon usually owned the wagon and the possesions inside were their own. Not so with the freight wagons. These were pure freighters owned by big companies who hired professional teamsters to take the wagons (and their freight) down the Trail. These wagons were not driven while sitting (the whole bed is devoted to freight). The teamsters were expected to walk along side of the oxen the entire journey. Some would ride one of the oxen, but most walked. (Most freight wagons had a board on the outside that they could slide out - right next to the left front wheel - but it is thought that these weren't used much on the harsh cross-country terrain which made up most of the Santa Fe Trail.) The wagons were filled to capacity with freight. The teamster had to sleep outside under the stars, under the wagon, or under a lean-to attached to the side of the wagon.

I viewed this using the Google mapping system and the canopy appears to no longer be there although the ribs can still be seen. (Aug 2010)

Used for kids playing dress-up, building forts, wrapping up dollies and more. Combine with our garlands for more dress-up options. Families also use them as a staple of their seasonal tables in their homes. Most popular waldorf toys, used in preschools, kindergartens and homes all over the world. Hand wash, hang dry. We find children love to wash these themselves in a sink or bucket outside. The silk feels different and interesting when wet!
