A light wagon constructed by connecting the front and rear axles with a light framework of thin hickory slats so that a seat mounted on the slats was somewhat isolated from the bumps in the road. The buckboard is commonly associated with the wide-open spaces of the West, but an 1899 encyclopedia says that it “was born of necessity in the sparsely settled hilly regions of New England and the Middle States, when money was scarce and roads bad."
