Replica trolley stop dedication on May 10

HAMBURG — The village of Hamburg and Imagine:Hamburg will hold a dedication ceremony at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 10 for the replica trolley stop located in the green space at Legion and Clark streets. Local government officials and guests will be in attendance.

Imagine:Hamburg representatives said that this dedication, which is open to the public, has a goal of recognizing and thanking the individuals, businesses and volunteers who gave their time, money and materials toward completing the project, which has been in the works for some time.

The event will also include a history presentation given by historian Jack Edson about the early trolley line, which linked the village of Hamburg to South Buffalo, from 1901 -1932.

“We wanted an opportunity to celebrate with the community, and to thank those responsible for their tireless efforts in making this replica trolley stop a reality,” Imagine:Hamburg Chairman Dale Neseman said.

The dedication will also recognize the late Donald “Duke” Spittler, whose son Chip spent more than 1,000 hours building the post-and-beam structure by hand, in honor of his father.

A public reception with coffee and pastries will take place, immediately after the ceremony.
