Love a Good Haunt

Tunnelton Tunnel

I know it’s not Halloween yet, but I love a good haunt. Some biker buddies told me about the Tunnelton Tunnel. The tunnel, built in 1857 on a CSX Railroad line, is over a mile long (pitch black, you’ll need a flashlight). It is located approximately three miles southeast of Tunnelton on River Road. Tunnelton is about 45 minutes from Brownstown – see Change of Color blog.

Here’s the Haunt: The night watchman, Henry Dixon, was murdered in the tunnel. And he doesn’t wait till Halloween to haunt, some have reported ghostly activity in the tunnel year-round. Get the in depth story here.

If you dare to go, be careful it’s still an active railroad!!
