[ARCHIVED] Streetcar 390 Open House - Saturday, April 28, 10 am-4 pm!

Square spirit door opening

After 71 years the last Hampton streetcar made its way back to Hampton in August 2017.  In October 2017 the first open house was held with over 300 people visiting to get an up close look at the trolley.  With the overwhelming success of the October open house the 390 Project volunteers have decided to hold one more before the multi- year restoration begins in July. 


The open house will be held at 57 Patch Road on Fort Monroe on Saturday, April 28, 10 am-4 pm. On hand will be members of the Streetcar Project to answer questions about the restoration and plans for the streetcar location in downtown Hampton. 


The committee is asking those attending the open house to look for photographs and memorabilia history at home and bring with them so that they can catalog streetcar history of the area. According to the Project 390 head Greg Siegel, “We were bowled over with the support we received from the October open house and the committee at that time said we have to plan another one to make sure everyone gets a chance to see the 390 in its state before restoration” .  Siegel goes on to say “The project time line to completion will depend on how fundraising goes.”
