Trolley Tour of Wildcat Valley - October 1, 2016, 10 am & 1 pm - Reservations Recommended
The old-fashioned trolley comes down from Delphi each year to take people on a tour of the old roads and stagecoach routes, old cemeteries, long-gone towns and settlements, and other historic sites in the Wildcat Valley. The tour is sponsored and organized by Promoting Wildcat Valley, a nonprofit organization that has sponsored numerous projects such as the installation of the bell from the historic Ball Hill Church at Ball Hill Cemetery west of Cutler, Indiana. Another important project was the installation of an historical marker at the former site of the Cutler School which served the community 1897 until 1958. This year's tours will take place October 1. For reservations, please call Judy Stirm at 765-564-6378. Space on the trolley is limited.
