The East Troy Electric Railroad is the last vestige of Wisconsin’s once broad network of electric interurban railways. Concentrated in the southeastern quarter of the state, this network once totaled approximately 385 miles of track. Most of the interurban railway mileage in Wisconsin was built between 1890 and 1910; the last interurban passenger in the state was carried in 1963 by the North Shore Line. The East Troy Interurban Line, formerly a part of The Milwaukee Electric Railway & Light Company, carried passengers between East Troy and Milwaukee from 1907 until 1939. After 1939 the six-mile line existed as a railroad freight connection for the Village of East Troy. The line continues today as a popular tourist railroad. The East Troy Electric Railroad is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization run by volunteers committed to the operation and preservation of historic trolleys and memorabilia.
