Hickman High School Tunnels - Columbia, Mo
< on 7/26/2006 5:44 AM >
Posted on Forum: UER Forum
 
My UE buddies and I have recently confirmed an urban legend in Columbia, Mo that there is a tunnel that runs from Hickman High School across several city blocks to Jefferson City High School.

Legend has it that the tunnel was build originally as a steam tunnel and later converted to a bomb shelter. However the tunnel, at least from the Hickman side. now appears to be sealed off.

We were wondering if anyone had any recommendations for exploring partially collapsed/in disrepair tunnels. Also wondering if there are any hickmanites members.

Pics coming soon

*Correction*
Jefferson Jr. High School is the end point of tunnel. (Jefferson Jr. was the former Columbia High School before Hickman was built in the 1920's)

I've heard that there are multiple tunnels below the school, and if I remember correctly from "mini exploration con big G daddy" there were 2 separate ways (left and right) you could go from the starting tunnel room. I haven't been down there to get in depth with it yet... but I feel a mission coming on in the near future.

Man, just my opinion, but once they start collapsing, you don't want to be there. Disrepair is one thing, but collapsing is another. Temperature change can bring them down. Noise for talking can bring them down. Just little debris falling at random can ruin your whole day.

I'm more of a mine guy than a tunnel person, but once they start caving in, agin my opinion is just say no.



I have changed my personal exploring ethics code. From now on it will be: "Take only aimed shots, leave only hobo corpses." Copper scrappers, meth heads and homeless beware. The Jonsered cometh among you, bringing fear and dread.

sounds way cool, at my school there is an alleged fall out shelter that connects the senior high and the junior, we think we know where it is and how to get in from the school, but thats locked off, we are hoping there is some other way in, but thats probably not gonna be the case.

out and under the town

We're not exactly sure if it is collapsed, we we're just wondering about possible reasons for it being sealed off. Most likely they just don't want anyone in it. That and as the rest of the tunnel system in the school contains asbestos, I'm sure that this one must as well. We're thinking that we will try the Jefferson Jr. High School side, before we try to break the seal on the High School side. But yeah I totally agree with Jonsered, if its partially collapsed i'm probably staying out, though I'm tempted to put a video camera on a remote control car...

ive already told fett, but my friend has that map of the boiler room there, and im not sure how far off it goes, but it may have parts of the tunnels on there. i can ask him. hes one for exploring that kind of stuff, so i should talk to him about an account.

i know some kids at jeff jr. too. quite a few from last year, but now only a few, as of the new school year. damn 8th (9th now) graders.

i can ask around.

But it wasn't because I didn't know enough.

I just knew too much.

That would be strange that the old Hickman would connect directly to the new Hickman, but people are strange in planning things like that. Since Jeff is 120 or 130 years old, they very well could've planned that out accordingly to move files, as a bomb shelter, as a lot of things. I don't know exactly how one would determine if it came up at Jeff Jr. or not, except to follow the tunnels as far as possible, which we haven't gotten around to yet. The tunnels are tiny once you get past the main part under Hickman, there's a lot of squatting involved. I also think that there are multiple tunnels, but obviously, it's hard to gain access to the tunnels without being spotted. I've got GPS capabilities that would normally map them, but that doesn't do crap for good underground. If you can CONFIRM that the map is real, and you have access to it, post back and we'll meet up. No sense chasing after a loose end.

Hey, I just found this site because I was wondering if anyone knows more about the tunnel. I looked for it like crazy when I went to school there, it was said to be under the Orchestra room, but I never found an entrance. I think it might be easier to access from Jeff Jr. Anyway, I decided earlier today that that is what I'm going to try to do when I go home for Christmas.

Some of us are planning to do a good deal of exploring over break on the MU campus, so if you want to meet up, send a PM.
