Society to offer trolley tours this Sunday


The Salem Historical Society will offer its second and third Underground Railroad tours on the Quakertown Trolley at 1:30 p.m. Sunday and at noon July 28. Dressed as a Salem Quaker, the docent takes passengers back in time to the year 1856. Travelers will return with a better understanding of the plight of slaves, the working of the Underground Railroad and the abolitionist movement that flourished in Salem prior to the Civil War.

Since the homes are private and entrance not possible, flashed on a screen inside the trolley will be more than 100 slides to show pictures of the insides of the homes, Underground Railroad hiding places, and several abolitionists who lived in or visited them. The slides will help clarify the historical information presented during the program. The tour will last approximately 75 minutes. Cost is $15 per person and a minimum of 15 people are necessary to conduct the tour. Call 330-337-6733 to schedule a tour. The tour is subject to cancellation if the minimum is not reached.
