Washington riverfront drain tunnel. When going to the river front in Washington turn left after you cross the railroad tracks. Follow this road for 500 yards and to your left you will see this tunnel.
The tunnel has a date on it of 1918 but the tunnel was built in 1869 as a part of the underground railroad. The tunnel was also used for Confederate soldiers to hide at night. When you enter the tunnel you will see new concrete and water.|
But if you walk 20 yards in the tunnel it will open up and turn into a brick archway. When I was exploring the tunnel I heard splashing from in the tunnel that sounded like footsteps. They kept getting closer and closer so I decided to leave.|
When I was leaving I was right under the train tracks in the tunnel and the walls where shaking and thumping from the train. The urban myths are that confederate soldiers will be in the tunnel waiting at night and during the day the ghosts of slaves haunt the tunnel fighting for their freedom.
