The Portland-Lewiston Interurban (PLI) operated in Lewiston/Auburn and carried 7.3 million passengers between 1914 and 1933. Attendees will learn about W.S. Libbey, the Lewiston businessman who build the line; Theodore Roosevelt’s 1914 ride from Lewiston to Portland on the high-speed luxury interurban, Narcissus; and how the only surviving interurban from the PLI was saved.

Currently under restoration at Seashore Trolley Museum, the PLI’s No. 14, Narcissus, has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1980.

Narcissus project manager Phil Morse and restoration technician Donald Curry will discuss the history of the PLI and the museum’s work on the Narcissus. A number of PLI/Narcissus artifacts will be on display.
