49th & University Avenue | Des Moines, Iowa


This project is an effort to ensure an important piece of Des Moines’ transportation history is preserved and recognized.  The $275,000 project will update the original trolley loop located near the Waveland Golf Course to include an interactive streetcar sculpture and interpretive signage.  This initiative will transform an historic but long-neglected site into an asset for the city of Des Moines. The Des Moines Historical Society, the Des Moines Streetcar Friends and the Waveland Park Neighborhood Association are all working collaboratively, to ensure the historic trolley line is long-remembered and understood.
