The Gruber Wagon Works
The Place Where Time Stood Still

Carol J. Hunsberger

This title documents the history of the Gruber family and its small business that operated from 1882 through 1971 in Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania. From its inception through the remaining decades of the pre-automotive era, the Gruber Works was representative of the many small wagon-making businesses that occured throughout the United States. As the automotive era emerged, wagon-making businesses typically either transformed or vanished, but the Grueber business - an exception - continued to make wagons and other conveyances until the 1950's and to repair these vehicles through 1971.
