Tunnelton High School Gymnasium/Auditorium; Tunnelton IN. Not sure about the history here. Have not done a lot of research. I do know Tunnelton's namesake is "Big Tunnel", a 1700-some ft train tunnel completed in 1857. I did tour that as well, stay tuned for the post. I also know only a fraction of the town is still populated. LOTS of abandoned houses. I rec'd unhappy looks from people who still lived there as I drove up and down the streets. Based on that - I left abandoned houses alone.
Back to the gym - I know it was built in 1957. I do not know when it was abandoned, but assume it is related to the drop in population. I also don't know if the actual high school was located on this same property...1.
