TROLLEYVILLE, U.S.A., the Gerald E. Brookins Museum of Electric
Railways, Inc., is a museum of streetcars and transportation located at 7100
Columbia Rd. in
The museum features, in addition to streetcars and the streetcar line, a car barn, and photographs and memorabilia of Cleveland's transportation past, and is planning to restore all of the cars it has acquired. In 1995, the nonprofit museum was supported by donation and ticket sales to its numerous annual events, which include the Christmas Festival of Lights, Jazz festival, Halloween party for kids, and murder mystery production which, combined, placed patron traffic at more than 10,000. In June 2001, the Brookins family sold the Columbia Mobile Homes Park. According to the terms of the sale, which did not include Trolleyville, USA, the museum was given 5 years to find a new location.
