PROject Waveland Trolley Park

​Project Waveland Trolley Park's goal is to secure funds to build an educational memorial honoring the historic Trolley System of Des Moines.  

These funds will be used to create and maintain a park educating the public on the history of the Des Moines Trolley System.

The DMHS extends a heartfelt “Thank You” to the W.T. & Edna M. Dahl Trust for their donation of $100,000 towards this project. This generous donation moves us closer to our goal of raising $300,000 to build this memorial, saving the rich Des Moines Trolley history and passing it along to generations to follow. 

For more information about this project and how your contribution will be used, please contact DMHS

Your contribution to this project is needed and appreciated.
