Researching a Star wagon

| April 2007

I am trying to rebuild an old wooden high-wheeled wagon. It has "Star Wagon, Cedar Rapids, IA." molded into the axle hub. I have done research through the Linn County, Iowa, historical society and found that the wagon was manufactured between 1866 and 1883 by the Upton-Chambers Co. If anyone has additional information, I would appreciate hearing from them. I'm especially interested in paint and wheel colors.
