Named after its founders initials, Edaville USA, began as a railroad park (Edaville Railroad) comprised of most of the surviving equipment from Maine's once expansive network of two-foot gauge rails that covered several sections of the state starting in the late 1800s.
Unfortunately, these short railroad lines fell victim to the depression and invention of the automobile. With the railroads closing, Ellis. D. Atwood began purchasing the remaining rails in 1946 and 1947, and relocated them south to Carver where he built a railroad 5 1/2 miles long around his 1,800 acre plantation of cranberries.
The trains were used to service his bogs as well as haul playing customers through the plantation for sightseeing. As the attraction evolved and became a Family Fun Park, carnival rides were added, along with extravagant Christmas displays drawing visitors from all over.
Edaville USA now comprises 250 acres and is evolving with many changes. Vintage amusement park rides, like an antique carousel and Ferris wheel have been added to the park. And seasonal events like the Pumpkins Aglow Halloween festivities in October and Christmas Festival of Lights offering train rides through displays lit with over 7-million Christmas lights are as popular as ever.
