    The Barlow and Sanderson Stagecoach is a mud wagon like those that operated on the Barlow and Sanderson lines in the San Luis Valley in the 1870s and 1880s. The Barlow and Sanderson Stagecoach was acquired by the Monte Vista Commercial Club sometime before 1947 and donated to the Colorado Historical Society in 1959.

    Stagecoaches were used to transport mail, freight, and people between towns prior to the rapid expansion of the railroad in the 1870s and 1880s. By the early 1880s Barlow and Sanderson stagecoaches were primarily operating between mining camps in the San Juan Mountains.

    The Barlow and Sanderson Stagecoach in Monte Vista was initially mistaken as a Concord, a popular model made by Abbott, Downing, and Company. It was later determined that the Barlow and Sanderson Stagecoach was actually an Abbott, Downing "mud wagon," designed to be smaller, lighter, and lower to the ground.
