Hop on the Trolley!

Sunday, June 9

Every year, the Crystal Lake Historic Preservation Commission creates a new trolley tour highlighting local history.  This year the trolley will travel along Caroline Street and Walkup Avenue.  The tour will highlight the historic details of some beautiful homes as well as person stories about their owners, builders, and the community.

Timed, round-trip tickets are available at Heisler’s Bootery, located at 50 N. Williams Street.  Tickets cost $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the tour (if available.)  “Day of” tickets are available at the ticket booth in front of City Hall.  Ticket holders receive a keepsake tour book with articles and vintage photographs.  Tours board in front of City Hall every half hour from 10 AM to 2 PM.  Each tour lasts approximately 45 minutes.

This is a sell out event!  Purchase tickets early so you don’t get left behind!  Questions?  Call 815-356-3738.
