On an autumn day in 1898, an electric railway car rolled into Myersville changing the way of life here and connecting the town with Middletown, Frederick and eventually Hagerstown.

The Myersville and Catoctin Railway was built and paid for by Myersville citizens eager to bring the railway to their small town of 150 people. The trolley made Myersville the hub of the surrounding farming area. Residents could travel to work in other towns and order goods from other parts of the country.

The trolley also was a source of recreation. and excursion, riding the round-trip circuit to Braddock Heights where people often stopped for
a picnic lunch then on to Frederick or Hagerstown, and back, to Myersville in the evening. The trolley ran until 1945 and the tracks were taken up in the spring of that year.
