This Abandoned Tunnel In Minnesota Has A Truly Fascinating Backstory

The Land of 10,000 Lakes is home to a few abandoned places. There are ghost towns across the state, especially up north. Abandoned factories and hospitals also make their appearances on most lists of forgotten places in Minnesota. Most abandoned places are left for nature to reclaim. But some of these places are given new uses, like the ghost town Forestville at Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park – and the attraction we’d like to introduce today. Read on below to learn more about the history of the tunnel at Ely’s Peak and how it’s used today.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
