THE TROLLEY BARN HISTORY
The Trolley Barn opened in August, 1889, as the service and housing facility for Atlanta's first electric street railway line, running from the heart of downtown Atlanta to Inman Park. Its life as a trolley barn was brief, however, for with the development of trolley technology and the merging of various lines into a city-wide network it became obsolete by the turn of the century. In following years, The Trolley Barn was used as a church, basketball court, farmers market, for various mercantile ventures, and as a storage and repair facility for antiques.
Over the middle decades of the 20th century, The Trolley Barn slid into decay and disrepair until it became ripe for condemnation in the early 70s. Prodded by urban pioneers in a reviving neighborhood, the City of Atlanta purchased the building in 1976 and, in conjunction with the newly-organized Atlanta & Edgewood Street Railway Company, began a restoration program which was completed in 1987. The A&ESRC, comprised primarily of local residents, now manages the non-profit facility.
The Trolley Barn's exterior has been carefully restored to its original appearance and its interior extensively renovated to accommodate private events.
