In the 1800s, stagecoaches were more than just a way to travel—they helped people throughout the country stay connected. Stagecoaches carried passengers but also mail, news, and even money. People depended on stages to keep in touch with friends and family. Business owners used it to send instructions and payments. In towns across America, the arrival of the stagecoach was an exciting event of the day.

Wells Fargo used stagecoaches to do business for customers from its first years in business to the 1910s. The excitement of seeing a stagecoach pulled by a team of six horses racing down the road carrying the Wells Fargo treasure box entered into the nation’s memory. Wells Fargo is proud to present the stagecoach as an authentic part of the company’s past and a living part of American History.

Wells Fargo’ present Stagecoach Appearance Program began on June 14, 1958. Sport Fellingham, a local rancher, drove a Wells Fargo stagecoach at the event marking the opening of a new banking store in Hayward, California. Dale Robertson, star of the television show “Tales of Wells Fargo,” rode along with Fellingham.
The popularity of that event prompted a national program, which has since generated annual audiences in the millions every year. A stagecoach appearance shows Wells Fargo’s commitment to the communities we serve: Every stagecoach appearance is a distinct reflection of Wells Fargo’s vision and values, history, and brand. The stagecoach is a tangible connection with our customers—Wells Fargo is here for them, now and over time.
