This I think was a neat time in the history of transportation to Skaneateles. We had a polution free, fairly fast transportation system between Auburn and Syracuse which would be nice to have today. The line from Skaneateles to Auburn was single track since it followed the street but the line from Skaneateles toi Syracuse was double track since it had a dedicated right of way. People could come out to Skaneateles from Syracuse for an evening steam boat ride and then go back to Syracuse late that evening. Such a great part of history. I donated the trolley stop location sign to the historical association which was originally located on Franklin Street Road near the Gurnee house.
