As the lumber industry thrived, so did the residents of Williamsport. By the mid-1800's Williamsport was known throughout the nation as the Lumber Capital of the world and a city of millionaires. These millionaires provided the funds and impetus for Williamsport's first form of public transportation - the streetcar. In 1863, Governor Andrew Curtin signed a charter creating the Williamsport Passenger Railway Company.
Under the direction of a business man named Peter Herdic construction of the railway began. In 1865, streetcar service started in time for the State Fair, held in Williamsport. The first streetcars were horse-drawn and equipped with a small stove to keep passengers warm in the winter. Electric streetcars were introduced to Williamsport in 1891, one year prior to those in Philadelphia. They operated in the city until June 11, 1933, when the last trolley rolled to a halt.
Today, we operate three replica Williamsport Trolleys named after local citizens that contributed to our history; Peter Herdic, Anne Weightman, and Carl Stotz.
