The Portland-Lewiston Interurban 1910 to 1933

Apr 10, 2018— 12:00 pm

 

The Portland-Lewiston Interurban (PLI) operated in Lewiston/Auburn and carried 7.3 million passengers between 1914 and 1933. Learn about W. S. Libbey, the Lewiston businessman that built the line, Theodore Roosevelt’s 1914 ride from Lewiston to Portland on the high-speed luxury interurban, Narcissus, and how the only surviving interurban from the PLI was saved. Currently, under restoration at Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, the PLI’s No. 14, Narcissus, has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1980. A number of PLI/Narcissus artifacts will be on display during the event.

Narcissus project manager Phil Morse and restoration technician Donald Curry from Seashore Trolley Museum will be the presenters.

This event will take place in Callahan Hall.
