Antique Bobsled

A workhorse of a bobsled has found a home at Case-Barlow Farm and will on display for the first time on December 10th.   Master  Woodworker Richard Grell has checked it and determined it is most likely pre-Civil War design from the early 1800's.  He says that "he will be using a very light touch to conserve the incredible historical integrity of this wonderful old work vehicle".  It was donated by Jack and JoAnn Grace.

The top of the sled top is about 11 feet long and made from poplar. The undercarriage are made from hickory. There are two sets of runners that allow the front runners to turn independently.      They are made of hand wrought iron.   It has no seat as the driver would drive standing up or sitting on whatever wood other materials being transported. It was very useful in gathering the maple sap from the woods  in the spring when maple sugaring as the runners would not get stuck  in the snow was wagon wheels would do.



Parking and entrance will be from the rear of the barn via the Barlow Farm Park parking lot. The main barn doors slide open at 10 am. Reservations are not required. Donations accepted and will be used for the restoration of the barn.  For more information, email
