Brockville is home to Canada's oldest railway tunnel, one of the city's most unique historical monuments. The tunnel was constructed between 1854-1860 to export materials and facilitate trade coming to and from the area. The tunnel stretches for approximately 1700 ft underneath the city and stands 14 feet high and 14 feet wide. Today the tunnel is still one of Brockville's tourist attractions, the big wooden doors open early in the morning and close in the evening. Historic plaques have been placed inside the mouth of the tunnel as well as at the foot of the track outside, courtesy of the Brockville museum. Come see Canada's first-ever railway tunnel, imagine the powerful steam engines plowing through the tunnel, feel the wind rush by you, and get your own little piece of Canada's history.
