The Transportation Barn is a memorial to John Peryam. John was an Encampment native and served on the Museum Board of Directors. There are so many things to see in this building including:
1912 Buick – Right hand drive. The last year they were built like this was in 1912. With some love and patience, this gem still runs.
Horse-drawn Hearse – This beauty was purchased by Encampment’s first undertaker and was used by his successor W.M. Englehart until his death in 1906.
Covered Wagon – This reproduction, which is on an original chassis, was commonly used in the 1840’s and 1850’s.
Sheep Wagon – It was used by sheepherders as they followed their flocks in the fields.
Also be sure to check out all the Saddles and branding irons used by local ranches/ranchers and Teddy the Stuffed (real) dog.
