2015 Tranquille Tunnel Tours Presents: CROSSROADS”
Participants are encouraged to dress warm.
The tunnel system was originally constructed to facilitate the delivery of laundry from the site Laundromat and food from the Cafeteria to patients and staff across the site. Electric carts, called “Tuggers” were used to pull trailers loaded with food and laundry around. Four of these carts have been preserved by Tranquille Farm Fresh. In addition the tunnels were used by patients and staff to move from building to building. They also served as utility corridors.
Tunnel construction occurred over decades and eventually was integrated into below ground floors of the Sage Building, the Greaves Hospital, the Main Building, Laundromat, Cafeteria, and other buildings. A barbershop, storage rooms, meeting rooms, offices, shower facilities, and morgue are included in the tunnel system.
Urban legends about the Tranquille tunnels have grown to epic proportions over the last 30 thirty years. Come and learn why.
Private group bookings available during Thursday evenings in September and October 2015, minimum group size, 20 people.
Tunnel goers must be able to navigate stairs. The tunnel will be minimally lit. There is a rest area in the tunnel.
