About this Exploration:

Take the Trolley Tour to hear about the 50 homes that are over 100 years old and the people who built them back when Iola was just getting started.  There are two different historic homes tours that are narrated: north and south historical tours.
The trolley calendar changes each year and the trolley runs at various times, depending on the tour.However, you can drive around town at any time and see the Craftsmen homes (501 E. Madison Avenue), mansions (515 S. Washington Avenue), cottage made into mansion (318 East Street), and the small Sear's pattern home (819 N. Chestnut) as well as the two story Sear's homes (302 N. Washington Avenue).
Learn all about the people who lived in these homes, and see the picture changes from the 1880s to now when you take the trolley tour.
Call 620-228-0439 for more information about this tour.  Tickets are $10 in advance.
