Moving My Carriages to Skylands

Moving precious and fragile antiques across state lines can be challenging and time-consuming, but it can be done.

I love carriage riding and have collected quite a few antique carriages of my own over the years. Recently, I decided to move three carriages from my Bedford, New York farm up to Skylands, my beloved home in Maine. This task took careful planning to ensure all the pieces were packed and loaded properly for the long, eight-hour drive. Once there, the carriages were wheeled out slowly, inspected, and then placed carefully in their new locations. It was an arduous job, but I am pleased to report that everything arrived in perfect condition.

Here are some photos and a little history on the elegant horse-drawn carriage, enjoy.
