Abstract

The interurban changed public transportation in the United States. The electric railroad was able to connect communities together, and transportation became affordable, feasible, and convenient. This article seeks to analyze this phenomenon from the perspective of the Village of Morton, Illinois and to question the true motives behind the interurban demise from both a national and local level.
