Order of the Wheelhorse

 

“Each year the Lamplight dinner is the setting for announcing the latest inductees into the Order of the Wheelhorse, a group of individuals who have been especially noteworthy in their efforts on behalf of the Tuolumne County Historical Society.” 

 

“The order’s name derives from the horse and buggy days.  As any oldtime teamster knows, the wheeler, or wheelhorse, is always the strongest member of the team.  His position is closest to the wheel and it is his or her job to pull hard enough to make it turn.”   CHISPA, Vol. 35, No. 3, January-March, 1996, “A Tribute to 40 Years of Preserving the Past”
