Swede Hollow History Trolley Tours 
May 9 and May 16, 1999 
 
When the Friends of Swede Hollow learned that the Great American History Theatre was going to have a play about Swede Hollow they began to think of ways to increase the number of people who love Swede Hollow Park.  Eventually the  idea of taking people on a tour through Swede Hollow developed.

The Swede Hollow play was a great success.  People from all over flocked to see it. 
 
Many people took a Swede Hollow Trolley Tour that followed afternoon performances of the play.
 
The first stop on the Swede Hollow Trolley Tour was Swede Hollow Park, of course.
 
One of the young actresses from the play decided to see Swede Hollow for herself.
The Trolley Tours ended the afternoon at Swede Hollow Cafe. 
 
There were refreshments and presentations at the Swede Hollow Cafe
