I had a few opportunities to test out the tunnel while in high school but the story was much different. I heard that the white house on the other side of the tunnel was the scene of a murder. The man living there killed his wife and baby. He then hung himself from a tree at the end of the tunnel. Supposedly, when you turn off your car and lights you can see and hear the man swinging from the tree. I never saw or heard anything but it still scared the hell out of us!
