The Impact of the Interurban
—The Historic National Road in Ohio —
The interurban line only ran for 27 years, but during this time it provided dependable transportation services and convenient connections to towns and villages across Ohio and the Midwest. Eventually the growing public preference for the automobile and the availability of
electric power from other sources ended the reign of the interurbans.
