At the Museum: Horse-drawn Fire Wagon

This horse-drawn fire wagon is part of a wonderful collection of cast iron toys that belonged to Harry Wiegert who lived near Palmer at the beginning of the 20th century.  In addition to the cast iron toys, the display includes a train set, replicas of early automobiles, pull toys, metal horns, charming stuffed animals and miniature tools. Harry did not lack for toys! Next time, I'll write more about Harry Wiegert and his connection to the Wiegert Prairie Farmstead located in Pocahontas County.
