Those Places Thursday: Connecticut Trolley Museum

   This is another one on my "I really should have been to by now..." list. Located in East Windsor, The Connecticut Trolley Museum presents trolley cars from the 1890s through the 1950s (when buses took over...). According to the website, it was founded in 1940 as a way to preserve a fast disappearing part of American life. In house exhibits trace the full history of the trolley, while outside, visitors can take a street car ride. It looks like fun, but what caught my eye even more was the blog.
  If you're interested in trolleys, streetcars, and more, check out their blog. Most of the blog covers museum events, but there are some great histories and photos. Happy reading!
