15 Staggering Photos Of An Abandoned Military Barracks Hiding In Alaska
Unless you consider the Prince William Sound marine accessibility to the isolated town of Whittier, there is really only one way in and one way out. As if that wasn’t suspenseful enough, to get into this tiny town you have to go through a 2.5-mile-long tunnel carved into the side of a mountain. Not only that, but this long, dark trek is actually the longest combined rail/highway tunnel in all of North America. So, it’s basically impossible to drive through this dark and eerie passageway without the lingering thought of being trapped inside crossing your mind.
Once you see daylight creeping out at the other end of the tunnel, you’ll know you’ve made it to the town of Whitter. But the creepiness isn’t over just yet. Head up to the old abandoned Buckner Building to see a tragic piece of American history sitting dangerously abandoned at the top of the hillside. While the outside looks unnerving, what’s inside will totally blow your mind.
