STAGECOACH 1848 HISTORY: THE FAR WEST MODEL Discover the American Stagecoach of 1848. Since 1716, stagecoaches traveled the distance between Boston and Rhode Island, but its design as we know it today would see the light around 1820. Now it has a built-in Oval box, a door on each side, an outside seat for the coachman and suspensions reinforced with a triple crossbow.
These stagecoaches were almost the only way of transportation available to the majority of the population to cross the country, it was due to the development of the west when they were most used, long before the railway. Most of the western errands were under contract from the United States Government to transport the mail and news of new laws, passengers travelling on different errands.
The company Wells Fargo used many of these procedures to carry not only passengers but also money, gold and silver. Its manufacture and utilization were halted around 1910 in most states.
