GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — A disassembled carriage dating back to the 1800s was recently discovered in the attic of the Rosenberg Library in Galveston.

Curators at the library's history museum say the carriage may have belonged to Mollie Rosenberg, the wife of the library's founder and namesake, Henry Rosenberg.

Museum curator Eleanor Barton tells The Galveston County Daily News (http://bit.ly/WodBm3 ) the library plans to eventually put the carriage on display.

Brian Howard, a conservation expert from Pennsylvania-based B.R. Howard and Associates, was brought in to assess the carriage.

Howard said it seemed to be in good condition and still had many of its original parts.

He says the goal of the restoration would not be to make it look like new but to conserve it in a way that reflects its age and history.
