The Columbus Buggy Co.
Columbus, Ohio
1907-1915

Clinton Firestone and George & Oscar Peters formed the Iron Buggy Co. in the early 1870s to produce low cost buggies. The firm was successful, but Firestone and the Peters brothers sold the company in 1875 and formed the Columbus Buggy Company.

The Columbus Buggy Company grew to become one of the nations largest buggy manufacturers.
