The Day the Trolley Died

The Trolley coming into Sodus on Main Street


The trolley was an integral part of Sodus transportation from 1900 – 1929. At the end of June, 1929, the trolley made its last run from Rochester through Sodus on to Sodus Point and then back.

It was a sad day for many in the small towns it had so faithfully served. On July 5th, 1929 Page 6 of the Record (yes the top of the Page reads June 28, 1929 because they forgot to change the date..oops!), The Observer Observes column nostalgically bids farewell to the trolley.
