Seashore Trolley Museum

Kennebunk is the home of the Seashore Trolley Museum. In August during a week-long experience the museum worked with artist Ann Thompson and six students and nine gallons of paint to makeover the trolley. The Maine Humanities Council and the Maine Arts Commission provided grant funding for the project. The trolley was donated to the museum in 1960 by the Nagasaki Electric Tramway Co. Ltd. of Japan to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the opening of trade between the United States and Japan. The trolley was built in 1911 and was used in Osaka, Japan, transferred to Fukuoka in 1929 and to Nagasaki in 1953. Read about the experience at THIS LINK the museum’s blog.
