Military Post Street Railway Company


In 1895, the Military Post Street Railway began operations as a horse - drawn railway. The line was organized by a local grocer John J. Flynn. The rails went from upper Main Street in Winooski to Fort Ethan Allen. This line was extended to the Central Vermont station in Essex Junction. Both the Military Post Railway and the Burlington Horse Railroad Company were organized, owned and built by the same people.

In November of 1896 the Burlington & Winooski Horse Railroad Company changed their name to Burlington Traction Company after leasing and operating the Military Post Street Railway for about three and a half months. The Military Post Street Railway existed on paper until July of 1926.
