The tunnel and the story are interesting. The house and the general store I have seen before. The main problem is that they need more help. Two people to run the museum and give tours. We waited a half hour for someone to come back...More

If you love history, this is a must see. The museum contains many interesting artifacts and explanation of an important historical event: the great locomotive chase and Sherman's March to the Sea. Tour guide did excellent job explaining the history.

Judy was an excellent tour guide! Getting to go thru the tunnel and hear all the amazing stories was very cool. Even saw a tiny snake on our tour! Definitely recommend doing the combo deal for $10 and you get to see everything!

What a fascinating spot to visit! The site includes both the 1,400+ foot long, Civil War-era railroad tunnel, which you can walk through, and a Civil War battlefield. You start your visit at the small visitor center and museum. They offer a guided tour, which...More

I love the little tour given of the railroad tunnel given by the retired guys who are clearly history buffs and love what they do. There is a little museum with civil war relics as well.

This is great for those history bluffs and railroad enthusiast. We were lucky enough to have him all to ourselves so it made the tour much more personable and we could ask all the questions we wanted. The tour doesn't last long about 25-35 mins...More

Note: You don't HAVE to pay for a tour of the tunnel. If you stop at the visitor center, and tell them you want to visit the tunnel by yourself, they will give you a print out of the "script" the tour guides do. (I think... More

We took the cart out to through the tunnel. It cost a couple of dollars extra but not that much. Well worth the ride. Our 'tour guide' was very knowledgable and we very much felt the extra couple of bucks were worth it... More
