History bus trip planned

The Plymouth Historical Society is offering a one-day bus trip to the East Troy Railroad Museum and Ten Chimneys Friday, Sept. 29.

The $98 per person trip, which will leave from the northeast corner of the Plymouth Wal Mart parking lot at 7:30 a.m., will include transportation, lunch, two tours, snacks and tip for the bus driver. Reservations are on a first-come basis and may be made by calling Virginia Suhrke at (920) 893-6112 or at the Plymouth Historical Society Museum, P.O. Box 415, Plymouth 53073.

The East Troy Railroad Museum will feature a ride on Interurban Car 26. The car ran in daily service connecting Sheboygan, Kohler, Sheboygan Falls, Plymouth, Crystal Lake and Elkhart Lake during the first three decades of the 20th Century.

Car 26 has the features and architecture of a steam railroad coach. After it went out of service, it was converted into a summer cottage on Lake Michigan near Cedar Grove, then was donated to the museum and restored.

In the afternoon, the tour will visit Ten Chimneys in Genesee Depot, the 60-acre estate of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.

Lunt and Fontanne are widely considered the greatest acting team in the history of American theatre. By the mid-1920s, they were the two most respected, popular, most critically acclaimed and highest-paid stage actors in the county.

This bus trip is a fundraiser for the Plymouth Historical Society. Payment must be included when making a reservation.
