Baby Carriage
This is over 100 years old. It was brought over from Europe by a missionary family. When Rev. and Mrs. Lenz left in 1932, they gave it to Harriet Andersen. Mary Andersen used it with all of her 9 children and it was passed around to others in the community if they needed it. At one time the carriage had a hood.
