This Incredibly Haunted Train Tunnel Through The Virginia Mountains Will Soon Reopen

With extensive history and unique attractions, Virginia never fails to impress. For example, did you realize the Old Dominion was once the home to one of the world’s largest train tunnels? The Blue Ridge Tunnel was completed in 1858 and was considered to be a marvel of engineering. Such progress came with a price, though, and unfortunately several workers lost their lives working on this landmark. While the train tunnel has long been discontinued, there is currently a renovation underway that will eventually allow visitors to walk or bike through the passageway.
