Exploring Forgotten Connecticut

Shadow Wolf and Lynx wander about Connecticut…

Taft Tunnel – Update

Posted by Michael on February 26, 2007

My wonderful wife found me a treasure on Ebay (as she often does). It’s a Lisbon Fire Department patch the clearly shows a train traveling through a tunnel. The motto ‘The First Railroad Tunnel in America’ lends credence to the claim that it actually is the first railroad tunnel in America (there is some debate about whether it or Staple Bend Tunnel is the first.)

I appologize for not putting out another post over the weekend, as real life often gets in the way. But I have a number of subjects to write about.

  • Samuel Huntington (First President under the Articles of Confederation)
  • Benedict Arnold
  • Uncas the Mohegan Sachem
  • Capehart Mill of Greeneville, CT
  • Ponemah Mill of Taftville, CT
  • 2 hand drawn maps of Norwich, CT (both 1876 & 1912)
  • Etc.

 So please stop by again in the future! ctexplorers@gmail.com
