This sleigh, a Portland Cutter from the late 1800s, is quietly sitting up in the rafters of Reichert Barn. This style is considered one-seater – well you might be able to fit two if you really smushed together. The sleigh, which belonged to Elizabeth and Stewart W. Horton of Skunk Lane, Peconic, was the fancy speedster of its day. It was built by the Sturtevant-Larrabee Co. of Binghamton, NY. Founded in 1881 by James W. Sturtevant and H. Chester Larrabee, the company built carriages as well as sleighs. In response to the evolution of cars, Larrabee went on to found the Larrabee Truck Company. This sleigh was donated to the museum by Roland C. Horton in 1962.
