From the turn of the century until the mid 1940s, street railways connected Stoneham with other area towns and to the City of Boston. The Middlesex Fells was a particularly popular destination for riders from Boston who made day trips to stops along the shores of Spot Pond. Some tracks can still be seen in the Fells, although large parts were dug up for the construction of I-93 during the 1950s.
