Saturday, June 9, Social: 12:30 pm; Presentation: 1 pm, at the Historical Society of Montgomery County (1654 Dekalb). Making History Greater Series: Montgomery County Trolleys.

In the first half of the 20th century, a wide array of trolley cars rolled over Montgomery County’s rails, from quaint open streetcars rumbling through borough streets to sleek 80-mile-an-hour trolleys sailing across open fields in Upper Gwynedd and Hatfield Townships. The cars had zero emissions, and some lines were powered by renewable hydroelectric power. Books will be available for purchase and signing. FREE admission.
