      The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department has a wagon wheel that was found submerged this week in a river in eastern Oregon. Approximately three feet in diameter, it has wood spokes with metal around the outer wheel. Currently, it is being stored under water in a “kiddie pool” until an appropriate preservation method can be instituted.

      The likelihood that the wheel has been underwater for a century or more adds complexity to its preservation. The department’s staff is wrestling with exactly what type of wheel it is and how best to preserve it and its integrity. What are your recommendations? A photo of the wheel is at oregonheritage.wordpress.com
