Snow Roller
From the collection of the Westford Museum-Painted wood model of a snow roller once used in Westford made by Bernard Wilder (1916-1994) in 1950. It was common to use oxen or horses pull the snow roller to make roads accessible, between 1890 to 1920.

Make a $25 or more donation to the Westford Historical Society’s Snow Roller Restoration Fund in the name of your Valentine, Galentine, or Pal and we will mail them a card letting them know of your gift!

Our snow roller was donated by David and Agnes Scott, formerly of Forge Village Road and stored in their barn for many, many years. This past summer Westford Historical Society President, Leslie Howard, oversaw the relocation of the snow roller the the Westford Museum.

Westford Historical Society members, Beaver Rogers and Newell Tillman have volunteered their time to do much of the restoration work themselves. We are asking for funds for sandblasting and purchasing wood to restore the snow roller and to build an open shed by the Abbot Bell Gazebo and Revolutionary War Drum monument. Creating another Westford Museum permanent outdoor exhibit, rich in Westford history.
