Old Sled Works

In 1904, Lightning Guider sled production began in this two block long factory along the Appalachian Trail. For nearly 85 years, millions of sleds and other wooden products (coaster wagons, safety gates and porch swings) were proudly built here and shipped throughout the US. At one point, this had become the largest sled factory in the country.

Sadly, production ceased in 1988 and the factory officially closed in late 1990.

In April 1991, the buildings re-opened as the Old Sled Works, a unique market featuring over 125 antique and craft vendors. A sled museum is also inside. Amuse yourself in the working penny arcade and have a milkshake at our vintage soda fountain.

Come enjoy the past. Take a virtual tour of Old Sled Works:

Any original buildings still exist? ...
