History hides just about everywhere we go in Missouri, often leaving us to uncover fascinating backstories when we’re up for digging a little bit. The longest tunnel in Missouri, for example, dates back to the early part of the 20th century. While it closed to train traffic decades ago, it’s now the highlight of a popular trail to which hikers flock.
