Neat collection of carriages and sleighs

This is an unusual collection of very nice carriages and sleighs. It is a small two story museum that doesn't take too long to go through.
stunning collection, worth a visit

The Thrasher Carriage Museum in Frostburg, Maryland is amazing. I did not know what to expect and the exterior of the building did not give me a clue. Very nondescript, but nice. The building seems something of a puzzle as is seems much larger on the inside, than it looks on the outside. Once inside, even if you never knew that you might find carriages interesting, you will be surprised and pleased. Everything from simple, working buckboards to glamorous, fully-loaded conveyances of the day. A hearse, a milk truck and sleighs that Santa would envy. Gorgeous, velvet-upholstered carriages with brass trim and leaded glass headlamps, a surrey with fringe on top, so many I can't remember them all. Tons of them! This is a great museum and a complete surprise to me. I could not have imagined that I would find so many lovely carriages inside...or that it would be so much fun to look at them. Great for families, school groups, history buffs or anyone remotely interested in history or antiques.

This was very nice little trip with very helpful staff.Museum free with ticket from steam train.Lot's of old horse drawn vehicles.You can take pictures if you like. If you are taking the steam train & getting off to visit Frostburg. This is a better option than the hike up the steps to see Frostburg.

Various carriages, sleighs, etc. Ignore the signs that say no photographs. The staff welcomed photos. The ladies were well informed and engaging. Donations accepted....be sure to help if you can.
