Fox River Trolley Museum

The only thing more broken than the windows damaged inside our Museum barn, were our hearts!
The Fox River Trolley Museum suffered a terrible burglary, that was discovered on July 7th. As reported everywhere, two boys, 11 & 13 used pick axes to break through a wall and did over $110,000 of damage across all seven cars inside the barn.

The museum is a completely non-profit organization, with no employees, and completely rely on volunteers and donations.
