Henry E. Kinney Tunnel - New River Tunnel

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Henry E. Kinney Tunnel - New River Tunnel

This underwater tunnel was built in 1958 to replace a drawbridge that was notorious for causing major gridlock in the city. In 1986 it was officially renamed the “Henry E. Kinney” tunnel, after the newspaper editor who had originally advocated its construction.

Two apparitions are sited here – one is a ghostly figure of a man wearing a brown suit and a derby hat, and the other is a shadow figure (or figures) of Native Americans running through the tunnel.

Considering the tunnel connects on the north end with the Stranahan House and on the south end with Smoker Park, its not surprising there is activity here as well.

  1. Me and my team went to this location last night (we went around 9:30 PM) and we did not see or feel anything. Maybe there is a specific time that it happens?
