A History of Twin Cities Streetcars
Produced by Jessica Folker
The first electric streetcar appeared in the Twin Cities in 1889, and within two years, the streetcar’s predecessor—the horse car—had been almost entirely replaced. This new technology would exist in Minneapolis and St. Paul in some form for more than 60 years, and its debut meant new potential for urban mobility, land use, and lifestyle.
Jessica Folker explores the history of Twin Cities streetcars, and whether or not they might return to the modern day urban landscape.
