Weber wagon brings history to life

MALONE — One North Country man has turned his passion for American history into a demonstration that educates people across the area on the Weber wagon and its role in the expansion of the United States westward.

Steven M. Dustin says he became interested in American history, and the old west in general, as a child watching shows such as “Gunsmoke,” “The Rifleman” and “Wagon Train.”
