1904 buggy donated to Triangle

It was about 1948 when Flint Liddon first caught a glimpse of the old buggy in his uncle’s barn.
The young man had driven a load of cattle up to William Myers Liddon’s farm in Nashville, and he was instantly attracted to the buggy.
“He had two buggies out there, and I wanted this one,” Liddon said. “He gave it to me, and I took it home and put a little paint on it here and there.”
He later purchased a horse to pull the buggy for just $25.
The buggy provided many years of enjoyment, and several years ago Liddon took it to Abita Springs, La. to have it professionally restored.
That’s when he found out it was a 1904 model, which seems appropriate because that’s the same year the buggy’s new home was built.
Liddon and his wife donated the buggy to the Yazoo Historical Society Friday. The buggy is now on display in the Triangle Cultural Center at the entrance to the Sam B. Olden Museum.
