Sutton Depot Cart
The two immigrant trunks have Swedish origins. The one on the right came from the Hultman family. The left trunk was addressed: Nils Persson; Sutton, Clay, County, Nebraska, North Amerika. Nils Persson immigrated in 1883 and homesteaded in the SW corner of Fillmore County. It too was in the possession of the Wach family.
I claim the Persson trunk rode on this cart from the train into the Sutton depot in 1883 - counter-arguments welcomed.
The cart is often in the front yard of the museum on Sunday afternoons, otherwise visit the garage to "Touch Sutton History."
