Solid Pewter Ornaments of Historic Glastonbury
Cub Scout Pack 241 is offering the 27th series of commemorative ornaments featuring historic buildings, locations and events in Glastonbury. The 2017 ornament depicts The Glastonbury Trolley
The Hartford Street Railway was a high-speed interurban electric railway system dating back to 1892. The system was made up of 40 miles of track connecting railway systems across the Hartford area. This important railway was the only link between the entire street railway network in New England. This connection allowed travel between New York and Boston by trolley. Despite having a connected network between cities, many intercity trips required changes of cars along the way. Most trackage was in or alongside public roads. A single line crossed the Bulkeley Bridge into East Hartford, where lines radiated north to East Windsor Hill and south to South Glastonbury Main Street. Trolley service was discontinued in 1926 as the company went into foreclosure due to mounting debt.
Each year Pack 241 designs a new pewter ornament featuring a different historic building, location or event. Hand cast by Woodbury Pewter, the ornaments are about 2 ¼ inches in diameter.
