A part of Laurel history is on display at the Sawmill
Square in Laurel. A Lindsey eight-wheel wagon from the late 1800s has been
restored and is now on display inside the mall.
The Lindsey wagon was built in Laurel during the heyday
of Lumber mills by John and S.W. Lindsey, who patented the eight-wheel wagon
and organized The Lindsey Wagon Company, of Laurel. The concept and
manufacturing were both extremely successful and the eight-wheel wagon was
found all across the U.S. and in Central and South America.
The Sawmill Square Mall sits on the location of the original sawmill
located in Laurel during the early 1900s.
Also, the Lindsey Wagon Company always paid their employees in silver dollars.
The company went out of business in the
early 1950s upon the death of John Lindsey.
The Lindsey wagon will be at the Sawmill Square Mall
indefinitely and can be seen during mall hours.
