There’s An Abandoned Train Tunnel In South Carolina That Was Never Completed And It’s Eerily Fascinating
Most people don’t realize South Carolina is home to what should have been (at the time) the longest train tunnel in America. But the tunnel was never finished. The project was to build a tunnel connecting a trade route from the Mississippi to the coast. The project was to carve through more then a mile of solid rock. The project was abandoned just prior to the Civil War and never revisited for completion. Let’s take a closer look at this abandoned train tunnel in South Carolina – and even learn about another never completed tunnel that now lies under a small lake.
If you haven’t done so already, this abandoned train tunnel in South Carolina is absolutely worthy of a visit. Did you know about Stumphouse Tunnel before now – or that there are THREE tunnels here? Sound off in the comments!
