You have to visit the L.V. tunnel just South of Ashley. It was in use for just 5 years, 1903 to 1908.

It is sad that such a historic site is falling into disrepair. I know that I would pa to get in and walk through it. It would make an awesome museum or walking trail (the approaches and the tunnel itself.)
