Starting in 1901 as a three-mile-long trolley line, the Chicago South Shore and South Bend Railroad eventually expanded to connect South Bend to Chicago. Today it is the only functioning electric interurban in the United States. How about that for a history lesson? We’re joined today by Cynthia Ogorek, public historian and author of three books detailing the uniqueness of our region. Episode #904. 1/30/15
