Historical Notes: In the United states, Stagecoaches ran between Boston and Rhode Island as early as 1716, but no further design developed until the middle of that century. But the stagecoach as we all now recognize it was developed much later on. In 1820 an oval bodied stagecoach was developed, with a rounded top, a door on one side together with an outside seat for the driver. It also had a throughbrace suspension on a three perch running gear. About ten years later, a modification was made simultaneously by J. S. Abbot, an employee of the Concord Coaches and also by Troy Coaches, and were almost identical. They were almost the only public cross-country transportation available to the vast majority of the population. However, it was during the development of the West that famous stagecoaches really made their mark as it would be quite some time before a proper railroad system could be developed in these areas. The majority of the stagecoaches in the West came to be under contract to the U. S. Government to carry mails and notice of new and detailed legislation, but passengers were always carried on different stages of the numerous and various stage routes. It was almost the only connection with the outside world, even within the United States. The Western Union Morse telegraph service was still very much in its infancy and even when complete, was unreliable owing to failures on the wire service, which was frequently cut by renegades, indians and others. Wells Fargo Express employed a great deal of these stagecoaches to carry, not only passengers, but also for transferring money, gold and silver. These and other stagecoaches under contract to the government were often used to bring payrolls to the troops trying to maintain peace in these wild areas. During the 19 th century the speeds and fares varied according to the period and the locality, but as a general rule it ran between 4 and 12 miles per hour and at a rate of between 3 to 15 cents per mile.

The production and use of stagecoaches lasted up until 1910 in the United States, and even for some of the more remote areas, production was continued for another 10 years. (by Artesania Latina)
