Electrified Rail: History of Boise's Interurban Trolley Line

Thursday, January 25, 2018, 2:00 AM - 3:30 AM

Once upon a time you could glide across the Treasure Valley on ribbons of steel, watching towns and farms pass by as you rode inside a trolley car. From 1891 till 1928 people of the Treasure Valley had access to a brand new type of transportation, an electrified trolley system. The Boise Interurban Trolley line ran from Boise to Caldwell providing efficient transpiration for commuters and freight. Towns along the line received electricity and glowed at night while other communities vied for the trolley to run to their town. Then slowly it all vanished from sight, what happened to the Boise Interurban? Ages 18 and up.
