El Monte, CA –The Trolley Tour of El Monte’s historical sites began last Saturday amidst the bustling energy of the El Monte Police Department’s Open House behind  El Monte City Hall. It was a perfect beginning to the tour which includes visits to the historical location sites of  Willow Grove, Gay’s Lion Farm, Medina Court, Hicks Camp, and the Swanee River Ballroom. Informative descriptions of the past helps in making the tour both fun educational.  It’s also fun just to ride around in the Trolley. Kids love it!

The cost of the tour is only $2 per person.

For more information and to reserve your seat on the Trolley Tour in advance, please call the El Monte Transportation Services Division at (626) 580-2217.
