Trolley Talk, Hopewell Library


Sunday November 4, 2018
3:00 PM

In the early decades of the 20th century, more than one million passengers each year rode the two trolley lines that connected Trenton with Princeton. Trolley tracks also extended as far as Pennington and Hopewell. On Sunday, November 4, 2018, at 3:00 pm, Dennis Waters will be at the Hopewell Township Branch of the Mercer County Library to discuss a time when the roads were bad, the automobile was not yet dominant, and for a few cents the trolley was the cheapest, fastest, and generally safest way to get from point A to point B in Mercer County.

Discover how Mercer County residents used to commute by trolley at this joint program presented by the Hopewell Valley Historical Society, Hopewell Museum, and Mercer County Library System at the Hopewell branch located at 245 Pennington-Titusville Road.

This event is free, but seating is limited and registration is required. You may reserve your space by calling: 609-737-2610 or on-line at: Refreshments will be served.
