The Studebaker buggy in the barn could seat two people and would have been used to travel small distances, to school, church, or town. The Studebaker Corporation started in 1852 as a blacksmith shop in South Bend Indiana, by brothers Henry and Clement Studebaker. Ultimately they became the largest wagon manufacturer in the world and supplied wagons for the U.S. Army during the Civil War.
The Hollenstein Carriage in the barn is a fancy carriage with a fringed hood or cabriolet, and seats up to six people. It was considered a luxury vehicle and was commonly used for family outings and visiting friends.
