Trolley Station Museum

The Boonsboro Trolley Museum is located at the intersection of North Main Street and Shafer Park Drive. The original building has been restored and was the Boonsboro Trolley Station from 1902 to 1938.

In its heyday, area trolleys served passenger and freight needs of over two dozen communities from Frederick to Middletown, Myersville, Hagerstown, Thurmont, Williamsport and Boonsboro in Maryland and to Shady Grove, Chambersburg, Greencastle and Waynesboro in Pennsylvania.  While trolley service in Boonsboro ended in 1938, the electric railway continued to serve Washington County until 1947 and Frederick County until 1954.  The museum was dedicated September 12, 2009 and houses trolley artifacts and photos.

It is the last remaining trolley station in Washington County.
