Our Carriages

Old Towne Carriage Company  904~277~1555

We only use hand-crafted wooden, Victorian carriages that hold 6 or fewer adults so it's easy for the horse to pull; guests receive lots of individual attention; and so our tours are reminiscent of Fernandina's Victorian Era. They all have comfortable tufted seats and traditional brass lamps to softly light the way as you travel through the streets of Fernandina.

Our black vis a vis carriage is used daily for history tours and it's just like the one that carried Mrs. Elisa Brady to the beach in Fernandina in the early 1900s (see insert). It has a fringed surrey top to protect guests from the hot sun and sprinkles of rain.

Our vintage Brewster Victoria Carriage was purchased more than 125 years ago for Lucy Carnegie when her family bought Cumberland Island. It is in excellent condition and is now used only 3 times per month for weddings and special events - so it's important to reserve this carriage well in advance. The Victoria carriage originated in England in the mid-1800s and is similar to the one built for King George IV. It has very intricate iron work; elliptical springs; a folding canopy; the original candle-lit lamps; and delicate gold monograms "LCC" (Lucy Coleman Carnegie) inscribed on both sides of its body. It was acquired by the Old Towne Carriage Company in 2007 from the Dressler family.
