Covered Prairie Wagon Mail Box (1940’s)

Prairy Wagon Mail Box

Prairie Wagon Mail Box

A little of imagination can transform a normal boring plastic or metal mail box into a Prairie Wagon.

Can lids for wheels, and four cut-outs of horses hitched to one end give this rural mailbox the novel appearance of a covered prairie wagon. The box is mounted on two wood blocks, which are supported by a
1 by 6-in. board nailed to the top of a post, the wheels being pivoted on nails driven into the bottom of the box. Horses, tongue and doubletrees are 4-in. wood, while the harness is strips of leather. The assembly
is painted in appropriate colors.
