A Magical History Tour Through Cary

Interested in learning more about Cary history?

One way to discover more about the town’s founding fathers (and mothers) is to hop aboard a nostalgic climate-controlled trolley visiting historic landmarks and other points of interests. Knowledgeable tour guides from the Friends of Page-Walker Hotel will enlighten you about the Guess-Ogle House, the Cary Arts Center, the Ivey-Ellington House and other significant sites.

Tours  also include the retelling of local legends and other fun facts including:

  • What was so “Ordinary” about what John Bradford opened in 1760?
  • Who were the two Nathaniel Joneses and why are they important?
  • Frank Page incorporated the town as “Cary” in 1871, but why was it named for Samuel Fenton Cary?
  • What man was buried next to his second wife but later reburied next to his first wife?

Groups of 20 or more can book a private Cary Historical Trolley tour for approximately $10 per person. For more information and tour availability please contact carytrolley@gmail.com.

Trolleys are provided by Raleigh Parks and Recreation. They are also available for weddings and special events.
