A Brief History

In 1875, the Church Hill Tunnel was constructed to connect the C&O Railroad with the Shockoe area. In 1922, the tunnel
collapsed, burying a train engine beneath it and killing four people. While efforts were underway to restore the tunnel, the western end collapsed, burying another train engine and 10 flat cars.  It was soon determined that the tunnel would be closed permanently.
