Title

SR081 East Main

Description

After much discussion, Salem’s city fathers agreed to a streetcar route on Main Street (the tracks can be seen in this card) in 1894. The system served Salem and connected riders to the Roanoke line that crossed over Masons Creek. The streetcars operated for many years, but were abandoned in 1931 with the discontinuation of the Salem-Roanoke line. The trolley tracks along West Main were removed in 1938.
