A great new adventure awaits tourists in Downtown Historic Norcross – a Trolley Tour which will be scheduled on the third Saturday of each month. The Norcross Historic Trolley Tour departs from The Crossing parking lot Saturday, August 18 at 10:30 a.m. for its maiden voyage. The concept for the tour through Downtown Historic Norcross came to Cate Kitchen, Norcross’ Downtown Manager, in response to visitors’ feedback about their interest in the downtown history.
Norcross is unique in having its original downtown footprint in place. Gene Ramsay, local historian and now trolley tour guide, will bring to life stories of interest about families whose homes and shops are located along the route while Cate will bring attention to exciting upcoming festivals and events. Visit the historic Cotton Gin where you will be greeted by Chase and Ms. Audra with a sampling of their IPA Craft Brews from Chase’s Wingery. Explore the current art exhibit, Sacred Threads, at the Rectory as you sip on a Mimosa. Then, end the afternoon paying respect to Norcross’ forefathers with a trip by the historic Norcross Cemetery.
The tour culminates by returning to the Downtown shops and restaurants where tour-goers can spend time at their leisure visiting our merchants. The tour costs $5 for a ticket and includes the tour as well as a booklet of discounts to participating shops and restaurants.
