August 16, 1955 – The Conestoga Wagons Attraction Opens in Disneyland

Conestoga Wagons

“It was the Conestoga, not the Covered Wagon, that developed the West.”

On August 16, 1955, the Conestoga Wagons attraction opened in Disneyland’s Frontierland. The attraction, keeping with the Western theme of the area, took guests around the Rivers of America on trails shared with stagecoaches. The wooden wagons were pulled by horses, and featured popular slogans of the era painted on the canvas tops. The attraction was closed in 1959.
