  • “The Rise and Fall of the Interurban Railways” – CVGS

    Oct 6, 2014 - 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
    Independence Civic Center – Willow Room - Independence OH 44131   (Directions)

    John E. Dailey, P.S. presents
    “The Rise and Fall of the Interurban Railways”

    A great technological revolution occurred in America in the early twentieth century.
    The first successfully mass-produced automobile closely followed rapid development
    of the electric Interurban railway. These events threatened passenger transportation
    by railroad train. Because huge investments were made in electric Interurban railways,
    by 1912 the American Interurban network became very important in
    moving people between cities. John will discuss both the meteoric rise and
    subsequent quick downfall of the interurban railways.

    John E. Dailey is a retired Professional Land Surveyor with experience
    in boundary surveys and property line determination. John currently writes
    for the “Cleveland Surveying News”. John’s memberships include
    the Computer Assisted Genealogical Group, the Cuyahoga Valley Genealogical
    Society, the Ohio Genealogical Society, the Northeast Ohio PC Users Group and
    the Western Reserve Historical Society Genealogical Committee.
