Prairie Schooner

The Prairie Schooner was a sway-back covered wagon in which many pioneers traveled to the area that eventually became Garland. Some travelers rode, while others walked alongside. This image probably taken as they left Athens, TN., includes two sons from the R.D. Jones family with one of the wagons that brought them to Dallas County in 1856.
