This historic landmark in South Carolina was begun in the 1850s. The total project would have cut rail lines and tunnels through a total of four states in an effort to connect South Carolina's coast to Tennessee. But the project ran out of money and work came to a halt. Attempts to revive the project failed.

Stumphouse Tunnel was designed as a railroad tunnel & built by Irish immigrants before the Civil War. It is not far from the town of Walhalla, in Oconee County, SC. When the Civil War broke out, work on the railroad came to a screeching halt. Clemson University bought the tunnel in 1951 and used it to cure their famous Clemson blue cheese for many years.
