In 1860, there were 15,405 horses in Cayuga County, meeting society’s needs for transportation. Auburn itself contained twenty livery stables and numerous privately owned carriage houses. Although all the livery stables were gone by 1950, some of the original carriage houses are still intact. Explore the history of horses and carriage houses in Auburn with Karen Bove on Monday, October 22 at 6 pm.
