The Mill Mountain Incline, or, funicular (incline plane), was located on Mill Mountain in Roanoke, VA, and operated between 1910 and 1929. At a construction cost of $40,000 the project was viewed as a major attraction to the city. The incline railroad was completed in 1909 when two counterbalanced cars were installed. The inaugural trip took place on August 10, 1910. A four minute ride up the mountain cost $.25 and lasted four minutes each way.
A toll road to the summit was built in 1920 for automobiles, effectively sealing the fate of the Incline. It closed in 1929 and was demolished in 1934.
