Stumphouse Tunnel – Mountain Rest, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Oconee County Photos | Stumphouse Tunnel
Stumphouse Tunnel was designed as a railroad tunnel and built by Irish immigrants before the Civil War. It is not far from the town of Walhalla in Oconee County. When the Civil War broke out, work on the railroad came to a halt. There were failed efforts to restart the work after the war ended, but eventually it was abandoned.
If you are able to visit the tunnel, make sure to also see the legendary Issaqueena Falls.
