Help Us Memorialize Edgewood’s Trolley Roots
Edgewood is a “streetcar suburb” shaped by the Broad Street & Eddy Street – Edgewood lines. After the tracks were removed from Narragansett Boulevard in 2017, a sculpture was created from retrieved pieces. We are now seeking contributions to meet the cost of landscaping and placing the sculpture at the corner and Sefton Drive and Narragansett Boulevard – the former “end of the line”. A historic marker next to sculpture will explain how trolleys shaped our neighborhood and will provide a link to more information and a film.
Please send your tax-deductible contributions to EWPA (Edgewood Waterfront Preservation Association) 1538 Narragansett Blvd. Cranston RI 02905 and mark checks “trolley memorial” or select the link below
