Horse-Drawn Carriages outside Eagle Tavern, Greenfield Village, 1929-1950

Summary

Early visitors to Greenfield Village rode horse-drawn carriages from the gatehouse to a welcoming center at the Clinton Inn (now Eagle Tavern). But by 1936, growing crowds forced the discontinuation of this service. Horse-drawn vehicles continued to rumble along the village streets empty or, on occasion, carrying special visitors.
