Wicker Sleigh Gifted to Middlesex County Museum

Old Wicker Sleigh at Middlesex County Museum

In the early part of the 20th  century the winters were much colder in Middlesex with lots of snowy times.  It was traditional in my family, The Mercers of Syringa, to travel by a single horse sleigh to visit relatives in the area.  The sleigh was just large enough for two—especially for my Grandparents, Garland Mercer and Frances Parker—when they were “courting” in 1918.   Over the years, the sleigh was rarely used  again for transportation but held a special place in the family when it was decorated each year for the Christmas Season.
