Underground Railroad Trolley Tour

Seats are still available for Sunday’s August 21nd  Underground Railroad tour on the Quakertown Trolley scheduled for 1:30. Previous participants have found the tour very informative and were enlightened as to the plight of the escaping slaves as they sought freedom while traveling through Salem.
If space is still available, walk ups are welcome at the Dale Shaffer Library 239 South Lundy Avenue before the 12:30 departure time. For further information and reservations, leave a message at 330-337-6733. Your call will be returned.

Take part in one of our Underground Railroad Trolley Tours, Ghost Tours, or Ghost Walks.  See Schedule page for dates and times as well as more information.

and recommends the wearing of good walking shoes.  The cost
of  the walking tour is $10.00. The dates for the walking tours are October 14th and 21st at 8:00.

The Salem Ghost Trolley Tour takes people out of the downtown area to cemeteries and other “haunted” areas around Salem . There are three occasions that you do exit the trolley and walk around so wearing good walking shoes is encouraged. The cost of the trolley ride is $15.00.
