Tunnel Turns 100

Old Tunnel State Park celebrated the 100th anniversary of the first train steaming through the only tunnel on the San Antonio Fredericksburg & Northern Railroad’s 24-mile rail line on Saturday, Aug. 17.

An afternoon of activities, many geared toward youngsters, began at 1 p.m. and ended at 5:30 p.m. with a talk on the history of the railroad and tunnel by a member of the Kendall County Historical Society.

After the event, visitors were invited to stay for the nightly bat emergence from the tunnel. Thank you to Linda Miller for submitting the following photos.
