About this Exploration:

Take a trip back in time by riding Iola's Molly Trolley! All trips are historic tours except those who rent the trolley for personal use.
Iola's Molly Trolley is reminiscent of the early 1900's when Iola had an electric trolley that carried workers, primarily, to and from the factories, but citizens rode it often, too.
The electric trolley's ended before 1920 and were forgotten until 2007 when the Iola Chamber of Commerce bought Molly from the Chamber in Atchison, Kansas.  The trolley has been going full-speed-ahead ever since!
Molly is busy giving historic tours from April to December with a special Haunted Trolley Tour in October and festive Christmas tours in December.  During the season the trolley is often rented out for weddings, family reunions, birthdays and class reunions. 
The Iola Trolley Board, under the umbrella of the Iola Chamber, offers historic trolley tours of old homes in Iola, 100 year old churches, cemetery tours, Iola historic tours, WPA tours, garden tours and Koi Pond tours, just to name a few!
Molly also offers historic tours of surrounding towns such as; Moran, Humboldt, Yates Center, Piqua, Colony and Chanute.  You may also see Molly in many of the area small town parades! 
Call the Iola Chamber if you are interested in renting the trolley or want a listing of the scheduled tours for this season.  No matter what the age, everyone loves to ride Molly the Trolley!
