Long Description:
This covered wagon can be found on the property of a cattle ranch, located on TransCanada Highway 2, few kilometers south of the town of Moose Jaw (Saskatchewan) Canada.

The wagon is restored and functional. A sign fixed on it says that it was donated (to the owners) by Lawrence Hall and it was restored by Del Paton.

No information was found about it on the web and there's no website.

The name of the ranch is located on a large board, placed on a wagon near the entrance to the ranch. It was probably inspired by the wagon. Conestoga, the name of the ranch, is also the name of a large & heavy horse-draw covered wagon with broad wheels used by American & Canadian pionneers of the 19 century, as they traveled west.
The ranch is owned by Ryan & Pat Gibson.
