Early Transportation by Stagecoach

As soon as roads were built and well enough developed - horse drawn stagecoaches were used to transport passengers, mail and goods between towns and across regions.
This mode of transport developed at different times across North America - for example the 18th Century in New England and the 19th Century in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.
Over time - long distance stagecoach routes were replaced with the arrival of railways - and stagecoach services changed their focus to shorter distance routes connecting towns with the growing network of railway stations.
