The Red River Cart-A Study of History

Photo from https://library.ndsu.edu/

Hansen Wheel & Wagon Shop has built wheels and components for Red River Carts in the past, but this is the first time we have built one from start to finish. We've also been researching some of the history to get a better idea of the species of wood and construction methods that would have been used on these carts which played a big part in the expansion of the fur industry as well as the exploration of the regions of the Dakotas, Minnesota and Manitoba. We decided to share some of this information along with photos of the progression of the project as we go along.
