The Screaming Tunnel

The city of Niagara Falls is best known for one of the world's most spectacular waterfalls, but there is a dark side to Niagara Falls according to an urban legend. A limestone passageway was originally built as a drainage system and a passage for farm animals to safely pass under the Canadian trains. It is said that a local farmer who lost custody of his children in a bitter divorce, purposely set his daughter on fire and left her to die inside the tunnel. If you light a match inside of the tunnel, you can hear her gruesome screams. The tunnel was filmed in the 1983 adaptation of Stephen King's "The Dead Zone".
