Jail buggy.

Buggy Barn Museum

It's a whole town set up like the Old West. Buggies everywhere -- some very interesting and labeled. We were there when they were loading three trailers of, I think, over 30 buggies to haul to a movie set somewhere in Oklahoma. Definitely a good stop. Pay in cash for discounts. Also, it's now an event center that can be rented out for weddings and parties and such.

It's the place to go for those who've dreamed of buggy-themed nuptials and receptions.

We're not true buggy aficionados, but they evidently performed a vital role hauling around live (and dead) people in the pre-Uber era.

Buggy Barn Museum

The museum exhibits a huge collection of restored historic horse-drawn buggies. Many have been used in movies with actors such John Wayne. Small charge to enter. Very worthwhile and interesting.
