tunnel exploring

This is the old tunnel downtown that used to go beneath the river canal and under the prison. We did not enter it...it was fenced off...
  

this is a second tunnel that goes under the canal and under the old water plant...these date back over 160 years or more...the construction is at least civil war era.
  
 
  we had sunlight near the opening...
 
 it became darker as we travelled along...
 
 
this one is on the other side of town and stretches for about 3/4-1 mile long...it got dark quickly as well. i was impressed by the wooden floor in the bottom of it.
