The mania of trolley construction in the United States in the early 1900s included three lines servicing Hopewell, Princeton and Lawrence Townships from 1899 to 1940. This document discusses the history of the lines, and traces signs of their routes still found along the rights-of-way as of the early 1980s – especially earth embankments with stone or concrete piers since the steel tracks were torn up.

Includes route maps and photos of remains as of 1982
Includes chronology of local trolley companies
