BOONSBORO -- Phased out of fashion by automobiles and buses, the last trolley left Boonsboro's trolley station in 1938.
But on Saturday, the old Boonsboro trolley station will hum with activity once again, more than a century after it greeted its first carload of passengers.
The old Boonsboro trolley station will be dedicated during Boonesborough Days, a yearly fundraiser for the Boonsboro Historical Society.
Boonesborough Days will be Saturday, Sept. 12, and Sunday, Sept. 13, at Shafer Memorial Park. Organizers estimate the event attracts 10,000 people each year.
The festival will have its standard offerings as an homage to the town's roots. As in prior years, there will be about 150 craft vendors, most of whom will demonstrate and sell wares typical of what Boonsboro's early settlers would have used and sold.
