Trolley Exhibit Looking for a Venue



The League of Historical Societies of New Jersey —


Trolley Exhibit Looking for a Venue


"The New Jersey Trolley Era" is an exhibit assembled from the collections of members of the North Jersey Electric Railway Historical Society and Liberty Historic Railway, with outstanding assistance from the Boonton Historical Society and Museum. 

The display includes scale models of various types of trolley cars that operated in New Jersey, along with streetcar memorabilia and artifacts such as operators' uniform jackets/hats, badges, books, publications, posters, post cards, photos, lithographs, maps, videos, tickets, timetables, lanterns, hardware, and more.  

Please see the photos below. The exhibit has been at Boonton Historical Society and Dover Historical Society and is currently at the Mahwah Historical Society. 

This summer we plan on moving it from Mahwah to a new site. 

If your museum or library would like to exhibit this amazing collection for a while, please contact Bill McKelvey at
