Wexford Trolley Station

Wexford Harmony Route Station is restored and open for inspection during all Special Events.

This building started life after construction of the Pittsburgh Harmony Butler & New Castle Railway in 1908.  It is a wooden interurban trolley station that originally served trolley passengers, and later postal and deli customers.  Its interesting history includes the 23 years it was used as a freight/passenger station for the Harmony Route, its relocation to the corner of Wexford-Bayne Road and Old Perry Highway in the village of Wexford in 1931, and its 83 years’ use as a post office, antique store, craft shop and deli.  The exhibit includes the details of the building’s relocation to the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum in 2015.
The Wexford station building is remarkably well preserved and really helps to tell the fascinating story of interurban trolley service from Pittsburgh into the North Hills and nearby towns such as Evan City, Butler, Harmony, Zelienople, Ellwood City, Beaver Falls and New Castle where it connected to systems reaching Youngstown, Cleveland and Toledo.  Always on exhibit at its location adjacent to the Trolley Display Building and will be open to visitors during special events.

Mary Jordan and Rita Trudel

Two Volunteer Open Houses planned in March at The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is welcoming new volunteers! Two informational Volunteer Open Houses will be held on Wednesday March 4 from 4-7pm and Saturday, March 7 from 9am-Noon, for those interested in getting involved. Light refreshments and tours will be provided. The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum’s mission is to preserve and interpret Pennsylvania’s Trolley Era, an exciting time in American history. The Museum’s collection has grown to fifty historic trolley cars and 2 miles of operating trolley line. It is the strong support from the community, particularly from its volunteers, that have made this possible.
