Here you will discover a wealth of information on the subject of horse-drawn transportation. The Carriage Museum of America Library is the foremost collection on the subject.

The Carriage Museum of America is a Library to serve as a source of historically accurate technical information on animal-drawn vehicles and related subjects. It is the only full time library dedicated exclusively to the Carriage Industry. Incorporated in 1978 as a non-profit educational institution.

Located at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, the library maintains collections of prints, photographs and blueprints of carriages. An industrial-sized tufting machine with accessories and a factory Singer Sewing Machine, used for dash sewing, are some of the artifacts on view. Also owned is a large collection of books and carriages given to the Carriage Museum by Ken Sowles, former president and a founder of the Carriage Museum of America. A collection of carriage making tools, donated in memory of Walter Leach, a former trustee, can also be found among the historic pieces.

The library is open by appointment.
