— Town of Middlebury Greenway 2005 —

The trolley bed was located where we now have the Greenway Trail.
The picture was taken in 1910. it was common for trolley companies to build and operate recreation facilities to provide a passenger base for the line. The Amusement Park was such a place. During the era, amusements consisted of fishing, bowling, billiards, dancing, and swings. Patrons also were able to purchase a ticket for a steamboat ride around the lake.
In the area that is now the Little League complex, a turning loop was located. This allowed the trolley cars to reverse direction without going to the end of the line.
The trolley line extended to Woodbury and Hotchkissville.
