Long before Wells Fargo was one of the largest banks in the United States, it was also a stagecoach and delivery company, finding its success during the Western U.S. gold rush in the late 19th century.
Wells Fargo has several museums in cities where the bank has a major presence. In Phoenix, the exhibits include a gallery of western art, historical photographs and prints, relics and historic documents, an authentic 19th century stagecoach (no touching) and a replica stagecoach (touch it all you'd like!). The replica stagecoach is a popular spot for family photo opportunities, so bring your camera.
