Long Description:
This specialist Farm wagon was probably used as a grain, or root vegetable carrying vehicle. Then used as a Hotel sign, before its current location & use since 2009 as a Welcome Wagon.

"As you enter Needles you will see the famous "Welcome to Needles Covered Wagon". It was formerly used as a sign for the El Rancho Hotel in Needles. Most of Route 66 through Needles is called Broadway Street. The El Garces Harvey House is located on Front and G streets; once another alignment of Route 66 through this desert town on the banks of the Colorado River." Text source: (visit link)
