The Longest Tunnel In Georgia Has A Truly Fascinating Backstory

But to those people we say, have you ever seen Krog Street Tunnel in Atlanta all decked out with beautiful artwork?! While that might not be the tunnel we’re talking about here, this one too is a fascinating piece of history. The Chetoogeta Mountain Tunnel in Georgia is the longest tunnel in the state, and it has a remarkable backstory that comes along with it.
