Trolley Talk

 10/26/2023 @ 6:30 pm

Late in the 19th century, trolley fever was spreading rapidly throughout the US, and Webster and eastern Connecticut were no exception. The local system began with a trolley to take visitors from the Webster railroad station to Beacon Park. Later, trolley service was extended to Worcester and eastern Connecticut. But it was all over 30 years later. Historians John Mrazik and Curtis Cleaves will tell the story of the rapid expansion and rapid decline of our local trolley system. The event is free but registration is required at samuelslaterexperience.org. The museum will not be open for general admission, though visitors will be allowed to get on the trolley.
