Historic Petersburg Trolley Tours
        Climb aboard the Trolley, sit back and relax as we bring the history of historic Petersburg Illinois and surrounding area to you.

        We will take you past several points of interest along your journey back in history.  Petersburg is rich in Victorian Homes most of which were built in the 1860's and 1870's.  Petersburg grew when many of the New Salem residents moved to Petersburg.  A short time later, New Salem ceased to exist. 

        During your journey into history, you will be entertained by a narrative of points of interest along the way.  We will stop  for a  short while in downtown Petersburg.  At this time, you may choose to disembark and enjoy the downtown area on foot.  There are a variety of shops and eateries  to wander through.  Don't worry, the trolley will return to pick you up.  Your ticket includes a round trip back to Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site.  The Trolley runs on an hourly schedule.  Consult with your conductor as to the return pick up times as well as the time of the last trolley  of the day.
