The Wheel of George Rapp's Carriage

The Wheel of George Rapp's Carriage

This is the front of George Rapp's carriage. The front axle pivots around the fifth wheel, allowing the driver to steer the carriage. There is a shirt step, attached to the front of the carriage, providing a foothold for getting into the carriage. Economy was the third settlement started by the Harmonist Society, and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Properties. The site is located in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. For more information about the Harmonist Society’s settlement at “Oekonomie,” visit the Old Economy Village website.
