Palmer House Hilton Grows Mushrooms in Old Tunnel Deep Under Loop
The tunnel, dug in 1906, has sat empty and unused since 1955. If its walls could talk, they might tell of how rail cars in the 1900s used to move debris and coal, and later mail and merchandise, through the intricate subterranean network woven throughout the Loop, connecting grand landmarks such as the Palmer House, City Hall and the Auditorium Theater.
"During Prohibition, it was used to move hooch," said Ken Price, public relations director and resident historian at the Palmer House.
