"I get to ride shotgun!"
A Wells Fargo museum that brings history to life. Imagine, it's 1858, and you're riding in a stagecoach from St. Louis to San Francisco - a journey that takes 21 days and nights.
Why It's Interesting
You get to see a genuine Wells Fargo stagecoach, and see an actual "shotgun seat" from which the expression "riding shotgun" came. Learn about the "treasure box", the outlaw (and poet!) Black Bart, and take a virtual stagecoach ride with Charles Dickens and Samuel Clemens. And yes, Fargo, North Dakota was named after William G. Fargo.
