Old Farm Wagon

The Newtown History Center in Stephens City consists of several buildings. One of them houses large equipment, particularly this old wagon.

This one is not a Conestoga wagon, which has more of a banana shape in order to keep cargo centered. It does not even appear to be one of the many wagons that were built in Newtown (Stephens City) back when it was well-known for the the wagons built there. However, I have seen a Newtown wagon in Luray, VA.
