A living history

Envisioned is a Venice history museum campus that will include as its “centerpiece” a renovated Pacific Electric Red Car trolley (circa 1905).  Phase II of the campus will feature a replica of the original Tokio Red Car substation that served Venice residents from 1904 to 1950.  The substation was so nicknamed because of its distance from Venice’s business district along Windward Avenue.

The initial museum space is visualized to be located in Venice of America Centennial Park, just east of the Venice - Abbot Kinney Memorial Branch Library.
