Plough (model)

"Just a plough, or dreams of the future?"
Model of one-furrow plough used to break land as the West was settled Plough model


This model of a one-furrow plough is representative of the type of plow many pioneers would have used to break the land they homesteaded. The plough would have been pulled by one horse, or a team of horses and symbolizes the dreams of the pioneer family: a crop, a home and a future.
