I love the little tour given of the railroad tunnel given by the retired guys who are clearly history buffs and love what they do. There is a little museum with civil war relics as well.

This is great for those history bluffs and railroad enthusiast. We were lucky enough to have him all to ourselves so it made the tour much more personable and we could ask all the questions we wanted. The tour doesn't last long about 25-35 mins...More

It's a small tunnel but thought that all of it was dug up manually is just unbelievable. It has a small museum too, showing railway stuff from late 1800 and early 1900. It's exhibit list is small but very historic. It's worth a visit if...More

A short drive off the highway gets you a great tour of this fantastic piece of history! Paid the $10 to see both the tunnel and the house (bedroom where both John Bell Hood and William T. Sherman stayed!). Tour on the multi-passenger golf cart...More

This was a side trip that turned out to be very informative. Learned a lot of facts about the Civil War that I didn't know. Was so cool to be standing in the spot that those from the past stood.

Did anyone else do the electric carts? I want to take my 4 & 6 year olds who love trains (and tunnels!) but I think they'd enjoy it more if they were riding rather than walking. Is it extra money to ride and are they on a schedule? I can't find much information about any of this online.

We took the cart out to through the tunnel. It cost a couple of dollars extra but not that much. Well worth the ride. Our 'tour guide' was very knowledgable and we very much felt the extra couple of bucks were worth it... More
