Take Some History Home with You!

Great Falls Historical Society Event

September 3, 2019

Great Falls Library

7:00 pm

Our member and our local historical lecturer, Karen Washburn, will tell us the history of the Great Falls and Old Dominion Trolley and Great Falls Park.  The trolley opened for business in 1906 and ran until 1934. It was the first transportation project for Great Falls. It provided transportation for city workers, school children, farmers going to market, and more. The trolley company built and opened Great Falls Park.

Karen will explain the building of the trolley, the changes it brought to farming, building the park, park visitors, and the amenities.  After the trolley was discontinued, the rails were pulled up and the road bed was turned into Old Dominion Drive.

Please join us, and bring your questions also! We hope to see you September 3, 2019!!
