Trolley Tours Highlight Historic North & South End Mill Sites


New Bedford TrolleyThe New Bedford Preservation Society will sponsor a trolley tour of many of New Bedford’s historic mill sites on Thursday, July 26 (South End) and Thursday, August 23 (North End). On each tour the trolley will leave from the William Rodman House parking lot, 388 County Street, at 6 p.m. Free parking is available there in the lot.

New Bedford was one of the most important centers of textile production in the world at its peak in the early 1900s. The industry began in the city in 1846 and lasted until the 1980s. The legacy of this long and eventful history continues to affect the city today in profound ways.

Please join the Society to learn more about the buildings, people and events that shaped the development of New Bedford during this important era in the city’s history. The tour will last approximately one hour and will be led by Society member Bruce Barnes. Since seating is limited on the trolley, please call the society office (508-997-6425) for reservations. $5/person; non-handicap accessible. Visit www.nbpreservationsociety.org to learn more about the society and its upcoming events.
