Stewart Tunnel, also known as the Belleville Tunnel was located along Illinois Central line. Located 4 miles southwest of Belleville,WI this former rail line is now the Badger State Trail.

The tunnel was built in a curve so you can't see the other side when approaching. The tunnel is named for James Stewart of Lancashire, Pennsylvania. Stewart, who was contracted to build the rail line was killed when he was thrown from a buggy while driving over the proposed route. Construction of the tunnel was completed on January 26, 1888.
