I just bought a house built in 1922. I was in the basement and was going to fill a small hole in the floor with cement. My foot went through the basement concrete floor to reveal a 2'x 2' tunnel that is lined with bricks. Looks like it was covered with wood(which is now rotten)and covered with cement. Does anyone know what this is? It isn't near a floor drain. It is near a spot where I believe a gravity furnace was once. ANY advice would be great! Thanks!
I'm curious. A 2'x2' tunnel. Have you checked it out? Where does it go? How about the house next door? Do they have a tunnel? What state are you in? Were there any wars or battles? The other thread about underground railroad might on to something.Check out the history in your area, perhaps at the local library or historical society. You might be surprised at what you'll learn.
