Horse Drawn Vehicles:

The Henry Ford has one of the largest, and most diverse collections of horse-drawn vehicles in the country. There are hard working omnibuses and stage coaches, elegant broughams, and speedy racing sulkies. Some vehicles were made by anonymous craftsmen, while others were made by famous makers like Brewster or Studebaker. These vehicles were used by many different people--from presidents and industrialists, to farmers and circus performers. They were also used for many purposes: the hearse carried people to their final rest, while the horse ambulance carried ailing animals to the veterinarian. Taken as a whole, the collection is a window into life in America during the age of the horse.
