SHEFFIELD – Colbert County Tourism is excited to announce the return of Sheffield Trolley Tours, a historical journey led by the esteemed local historian Jimmy Austin. Due to overwhelming popularity in October, we’re thrilled to bring back this experience on December 10th and 17th at 2 p.m., departing from Sheffield City Hall.
Susann Hamlin, President and CEO of Colbert County Tourism, expresses her enthusiasm for the community’s interest in history, stating, “These events not only attract visitors but also showcase Sheffield as a fantastic place to live. The pride our community members feel in our history inspires both locals and out-of-towners to join in, and we anticipate another fantastic turnout for the December Sheffield Trolley Tours.”
Join us for an enchanting two-hour journey through Sheffield’s history, exploring the city’s vibrant past with Jimmy Austin as your guide. Tickets are available for just $10 at the Sheffield Public Library.
Reflecting on the success of the previous tours, Jimmy Austin notes, ” Due to overwhelming response to the October tours two additional tours have been scheduled for two Sundays in December.
The trolley tour will travel the historic area of North Montgomery Avenue and will showcase many homes decorated for the holiday season. I’m most grateful to Susann Hamlin and the wonderful staff at the Colbert Tourism Office for their help in providing the trolley, the promotional poster, and having the tickets printed. The October trolley tours sold out on two of the three dates so I suggest securing tickets from the Sheffield Public Library right away. There will only be 26 tickets sold for each of the two tours.
I hope to see you on the trolley in December!”
Don’t miss the opportunity to hop aboard the Sheffield Trolley Tours and uncover the city’s rich history. Join us on December 10th and 17th to experience the magic, stories, and insider facts that bring Sheffield’s past to life. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, this event promises an enriching experience that will foster a greater appreciation for the city.
