Please note that although the webpage states 12 and under free it is ONLY for the Re-enactment. It is a small local run tour. Very nice though. Enjoyed it. They are going to upgrade as well. Maybe will visit again once upgrades are completed. Think the re-enactment would be nice.

I thoroughly enjoyed the train museum and the tour. The tourguide, Hub, was great. My Dad and I enjoyed talking to him. The tunnel was definitely the highlight of the tour. I hope those caring for and contributing their time to this great piece of history continue their work.

From Our Editors

In 1848, railway workers embarked on a project to open up trade between the Midwest and East Coast by digging a 1,477-foot tunnel through the base of the Chetoogeta Mountain. Around them, the town of Tunnel Hill sprouted up, as well as Clisby Austin's antebellum-style home, which would go on to serve as a hospital and the headquarters of William Sherman during the Civil War. Train cars eventually outgrew the tunnel, leading to the construction of a larger, parallel tunnel and the retirement of the Western & Atlantic Railroad Tunnel in 1928.

Today, visitors can take a step back in time by walking though the restored tunnel's stone arches or gleaning factual tidbits at the Heritage Center Museum. Civil War reenactments bring the grassy fields to life, as the Federals and Confederates engage in battle and hoop-skirted civilians struggle to stitch up the field's time-space wormhole.
