The Tunnel Hill Heritage Center and Museum is your entry to the Tunnel Hill Heritage Park where you will walk through 1,477 feet of railroad and Civil War history at the Western and Atlantic Tunnel, completed in 1850. It was the first major railroad tunnel in the South, the final link in the first railroad tunnel through the Appalachian Mountains, and witness to the 1862 Great Locomotive Chase.

Take a guided tour, see original drill marks made during the making of the tunnel, and see where the Civil War’s Great Locomotive Chase came through in 1862. Your tour includes the Tunnel, Visitor Center and Museum, and the 1848 Clisby Austin House that served as General Sherman’s headquarters May 7-13, 1864.

The Battle of Tunnel Hill Civil War Reenactment takes place each September, the weekend after Labor Day.
