The 19th century was the great age of horse-drawn transportation. Americans were on the move in wagons, coaches, shays, sleighs, & on horseback. Hitching posts & mounting steps were a common visual item in American towns, villages, inns, churches,farms & country houses where they were once almost an obligatory feature. Most hitching posts are rather simple pillar style structures cast from concrete. This artifact is still standing at Good Shepherd Fairview Home in Binghamton.
