STORY OF THE QUILT SQUARE HORSE AND WAGON BY THE ERWIN EXTENSION HOMEMAKERS CLUB FOR HARNETT COUNTY HISTORICAL QUILT, 1989

Erwin Quilt Square

Horse and Wagon

This horse and wagon depicts the method by which cotton was transported to the mill. The Erwin Cotton Mills Company owned thousands of acres of land on which cotton was grown. The people who lived on these farms and produced the cotton for the mill had a lifestyle akin to a share cropper or tenant farmer. The bales of cotton were brought to the mill, one at a time, by horse and wagon.
