Lemoigne's Wagon

This took some searching and a few hints from a friend but back in 2008, we went searching for Lemoigne’s Wagon. At first, I thought this wagon was related to traffic on the old Skidoo to Keeler trail. But now, I’m inclined to believe it was Lemoigne’s. What puzzles me is its location off of the old road as it is; its location just doesn’t make sense.

I revisited the site in 2020 and added photos below. As expected, it is slowly decaying.

If you visit the wagon, please leave it as it is. It is unbelievably fragile, and the century-old wood is disintegrating before our eyes.
