‘Trolley park’ turns 100
Quassy Amusement Park, one of 11 remaining “trolley parks” in the United States, is celebrating its centennial season.
“This is a milestone for any business, but especially for a family-owned park,” notes George Frantzis II, Quassy co-owner. Not only is Quassy celebrating its centennial this year, but this also marks the 71st year of family ownership, as my grandfather and two partners purchased the property in 1937. There are only a handful of family-owned amusement parks remaining in the United States.”
Based in Middlebury, Connecticut, the park has grown in recent years under the ownership of the Frantzis and Anderson families and has become a vacation destination. A full park profile will follow soon in Park World.
