    Historical Context

    The Forest City Railway was one of Cleveland's trolley systems. The company's original route ran along Denison Avenue. The city later granted a franchise to the company to run along Woodland Avenue.

     

    The company was later leased to the Municipal Traction Company - a holding company.

     

    All told the company operated about 12 to 14 miles of track.
