You are standing over a 423 foot man-made sandstone tunnel built by the railroad between 1864 and 1870. Located on the Pittsburgh-Columbus main line, up to 37 trains a day passed under East Main Street during the railroad's heyday.

The station, rail, tunnel, and grounds were purchased by the community in 1991 after the line was abandoned. They are on the National Register of Historic Places.
