If it was not for the humble wood spooked Wagon Wheel, American history would have to be rewritten. St. Louis was known as the jumping off point to start the long and dangerous track westward for our forefathers. It would have been a long walk and the family heirlooms would not have been on the trip westward had it not been for the lowly wood spooked Wagon Wheel.

We Americans did not invent the wagon wheel, we did however perfect it. The classic spooked Wagon Wheel with hub and iron rim, had been in use from about 500 BC in various forms and shapes and was the main means of transportation until the early twentieth century. The oldest known example of a wooden Wagon Wheel and its axle were found in 2003 at the Ljubljana Marshes some 20 km south of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. The wheel a diameter of 72 centimetres (28 in) and has been made of Ash wood, whereas its axle has been made of Oak.. According to the radiocarbon dating, the Wagon Wheel is between 5,100 and 5,350 years old. The question of which culture originally invented the wheeled vehicle remains unresolved and under debate.

The first Wagon Wheels were round solid wood disc with a hole in the center for the axle. The earliest known examples of the wood spooked Wagon Wheels that we know are in the context of the Andronovo culture, dating back to 2000 BC. The spooked Wagon Wheel was in continued use without major modification until the 1870s, when wire wheels and pneumatic tires were invented. Even after Henry Ford built his car, he was still using a refined version of the Wood Wagon Wheel.

We still produce Wagon Wheels the same way they have been produced for the past 150 years. Some of the tools have been modernized; however, we still use tools that are a hundred years old in the production of our Wagon Wheels. With all of our modern technology and ability, no one has been able to make a machine that will produce Wagon Wheels. It is still a labor intensive project that requires hands on from someone that has spent years learning their trade.
