Default History Of Laconia Car Company At Lake Winni Museum

On Wednesday, July 10th at 7pm PM, the Lake Winnipesaukee Museum will host local historian and columnist Warren D. Huse with his presentation on the history of the Laconia Car Company, which manufactured railroad and trolley cars between 1848-1928 in Laconia.
To reserve your seat call 366-5950 or email lakewinnipesaukeemuseum @gmail.com with name, # in party and call back number. The museum is located in the Weirs next door to Funspot.
Over the 80 years of its existence, the Laconia Car Company produced thousands of railroad cars, both freight and passenger, and hundreds of trolley and subway cars, the vast majority of which went to rail and trolley lines on the East Coast. The company built at least two coaches for the Mount Washington Cog Railway, and Laconia cars are still in service on certain tourist railways, such as the one in Conway NH.
This program is free for Lake Winnipesaukee Historical Society members; for non-members there is a $5 fee. Since seating is limited reservations are recommended.

A little more of a heads up would have been appreciated. I know that the current owner of the building would have been extremely interested in attending this presentation and learning a little more about the history of the building.
