Dinky Line Walking Tour

Saturday, December 16, 2023 at 1:00 – 2:00 PM

Join Historic Takoma for a walking tour of the historic Dinky Line. We will trace the trolley route from the intersection of Carroll Avenue and Ethan Allen Avenue (Takoma Junction) down to the site of the Wildwood resort on Sligo Creek. Along the way, we’ll talk about how the short-lived line connected local and DC residents to the resort in the late 1890’s. 

Meet at the Sycamore Avenue parking lot of the Takoma Park Silver Spring Co-op. Please sign up in advance by writing to info@historictakoma.org with “Dinky” in the subject line. This will allow us to prepare for the walk and reach you if need be. Check our website (historictakoma.org) for information if the weather looks iffy. A donation of $5 is requested to support the work of Historic Takoma.

ISO Takoma Authors

Historic Takoma has launched a project to collect and document the work of authors living in (or closely associated with) Takoma Park. Initially this project focuses on collecting the publications of Takoma Authors and developing short biographical profiles to introduce the authors to the community. We currently have a small collection of books by local authors in our Reading Room – but it’s a tiny fraction of this author-rich community. The current list of books in our Takoma Authors Collection can be be found here.

If you are a published author living in Takoma Park – or once lived in Takoma Park or otherwise are closely associated with Takoma Park – Read More
