The Seashore Trolley Museum, in partnership with York County Community College, has received a $1250 grant from the Maine Memory Network to create an online exhibit entitled “A Virtual Trolley Tour of Maine”. YCCC alum Christopher Carney will serve as the project’s Archival Intern. After attending YCCC, Chris received his Bachelor’s degree in History and Japanese Studies from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and plans to pursue a graduate degree in Library and Information Science with a concentration in Archival Management this fall. The project will take place over the summer at the YCCC Library, under the supervision of Amber Tatnall, Library Director. The online exhibit will consist of digitized historical photographs from the Museum’s collection, an exhibit narrative, and hand-drawn maps from the previously unpublished Atlas of Maine Trolleys. Watch for the exhibit’s unveiling on the Maine Memory Network in Fall 2011.
