The Summer Lunch Trolley is finished for the summer, but wait … a Dinner Trolley will be announced soon.
The new Downtown Trolley will be used for special events in Gainesville. The classic look of the trolley is a nod to a period (late 1800s and early 1900s) when trolleys were all the rage across the country including right here in Gainesville.
The Gainesville Street Railway Company was formed in 1875 and a streetcar line was constructed with horse and mule-drawn trolley cars. The horse and mule-drawn trolley cars were replaced with electric cars in 1903. The route went from the Railroad Depot up Main Street, around the Square, up Green Street to the Gower Spring Hotel, and Riverside Drive to the springs at the Chattahoochee River, and out East Washington and Spring Streets to the New Holland Spring Hotel.1
