A Legendary Feat of Man which took decades to complete has a Dark and Sinister History….

The Hoosac Tunnel has a dark and haunted past

The Hoosac Tunnel in Northwestern Massachusetts is a 4.75 mile tunnel that goes through a small mountain range. Construction began on the project in 1851 and completed in 1875 creating a link to the cities of Albany, New York and Boston, Massachusetts. At the time of it’s completion it was one of the longest underground tunnels in the world and is still in use today as several trains use it daily.

However, the tunnel has a tragic past in that nearly two hundred men died during the construction of it. Accidents included explosions, drownings, deadly fumes, tunnel collapses missing persons and even an unsolved murder. The place had so much death it was nicknamed “The Bloody Pit”. Even after it’s construction around 35 people have died since. There have also been reports of people hearing the cries of the dead as well as seeing apparitions and ghosts. One man even reported how he believes a ghost warned him and saved his life from being hit by a train.

Trespassing is not allowed in the tunnel because trains still use the track there. To read more about Hoosuc Tunnel visit here. https://hoosactunnel.net/hauntings/
