This freight wagon was originally owned by Con O’Driscoll who lived near the Strawberry River in Duchesne County. It was used to haul grain and hay to Price and Wellington through 9 Mile Canyon. After the goods were sold, the empty wagon was filled with coal to take back to Duchesne.
The wagon was later bought by Ferron J. Petersen who had it on his farm in Duchesne. It was restored by his grandson, Cody Petersen, as an Eagle Scout project and then was donated to the DUP Museum by Ferron’s wife, Louise Petersen in 1997.
Located outside the Vernal DUP Museum at the old Tithing Office.
