The restored vintage trolley cars take you on a three mile round trip on the oldest continuously-operating suburban trolley route in the United States. Lovely in all seasons, the beautiful woods and open wetlands are appealing to all ages. The museum houses exhibits and artifacts.  A guided or self-tour of the extensive collection of antique streetcars teaches the history and significance of the trolley era. Some of the many special events throughout the year include: Easter Bunny, Mother's Day, Father Day, Reading Program, Super Heroes, Antique Car and Fire Truck Show, in October the Pumpkin Patch, especially suited for young children, and Haunted Isle, best for adults or mature audiences and Santa visits in December.
