“See how buggy's used to be made”

From 1883 to 1920, William A. Heiss operated a successful buggy making business. As the demand for automobiles grew, the demand for horse-drawn vehicles declined. During the 1920s, William pursued other occupations, beekeeping, selling stoves and fence gates, and repainting automobiles to name a few. When he died in 1931, the factory was closed. For years, the building was used for storage, but mostly it lay forgotten. Almost 50 years later, the doors were opened to reveal an original shop with belting and pulleys, tools, machinery and forges. It was as if William Heiss and his workers had simply walked away. We invite you to step back in time and visit with the Heiss family . . . take a virtual tour or come to the museum and experience Buggy Town in person. Visitors can now easily donate to the Mifflinburg Buggy Museum. Your donation will help preserve one of our town's most treasured pieces of history for generations to come!

A wonderful and insightful journey into the art of buggy and carriage making. Walking through these buildings was like stepping back in time. The guide was very knowledgeable and the artifacts and information were very interesting.
