Brett Dunbar gave an engaging tour of the early 20th century’s primary mode of transportation during the September meeting of the Crawford County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society on Thursday the 16th at the Bucyrus Public Library.

Through historic photos he led the attendees on a typical trip from downtown Mansfield, through Crestline and Galion, stopping briefly at Seccaium Park, and finally to the Square in Bucyrus where the hulking steel cars used a wye track to turn around for their return trip across Crawford and Richland Counties.

Brett Dunbar explains how the wye track was used to turn the Interurban cars in the early part of the 20th century.

Crawford County Chapter Meetings are held the third Thursday in the months of April, May, June, September, October, November. Programs are listed on the Events Page.
