1905 child's goat cart
A pair of goats would pull the cart.
Horse tricycles were made in the 1920s to 1930s for circus clowns.
You pumped the handlebars up and down to move the horse.
 1906 Model N Ford
The period clothing is present throughout the museum.
1908 Sears Autobuggy with 14 HP
These were made by Sears and Roebuck. Like International Harvester, they took their best selling horse drawn model, put an engine in it, and mass produced it.
  This is a dapper looking gentleman!

 (I will post more pictures from the car museum tomorrow.)

 If you love cars or transportation history, chances are, you will enjoy a visit to Luray, VA's Car and Carriage Caravan Museum. It is included in the cost of the cavern tour. It is next door to the cavern entrance and is a self guided tour that starts with horse drawn buggies. The pathways are narrow, and it is a challenge sometimes to maneuver around other visitors and to get a picture of the displays.
