The Traveling Trolley Time Capsule Brings A Piece Of Boise's Yesteryear To Your Neighborhood

May 8, 2019

Before WWII, street trolleys were once a ubiquitous feature in all medium-to-large cities in America. You can still see the tracks embedded in streets from Philadelphia to Fresno. Boise celebrates its streetcar heritage with the Traveling Trolley Time Capsule - a mobile exhibit of trolleys from the late 19th and early 20th centuries that will travel to several Treasure Valley neighborhoods. We talk with Barbara Perry Bauer from TAG Historical Research and Consulting about this unique glimpse into the region's past.
