In 1908, Trolley was built in Medina
By Bill Lattin, Orleans County Historian
MEDINA – The BL & R trolley system was under construction when this picture was taken in 1908.
Looking south on Main Street in Medina tracks are being laid around the corner to Main Street from East Center Street. People on West Center Street did not want the trolley going by their homes. Hence the line turned at this corner and ran on to Commercial Street out to Salt Works Road, rather than a straight line through Medina.
The Buffalo, Lockport and Rochester trolley system ceased operation in April 1931.
