Long Description:
Built in 1870, according to the Keystone. We discovered this heading south on Rt 8. It sits right by the highway and the map shows that it makes an immediate right turn west. We could not find the other end and we are wondering if we missed it or if it got filled in for safety purposes. A visitor can park at the entrance easily and can climb a small embankment to look inside. About 150 feet in there has been a massive collapse. This is a dangerous location, so don't do inside.
