Army Tunnels of the North Shore

Could be Rabbit…

I just heard a story about a tunnel that led from the National Guard base, Curtis Guild, in Wakefield MA. A friend of mine during a war game found a tunnel on the base, they thought they could come up and out flank their opponent. Instead they were more intrigued with where the tunnel went. So they walked to the Nike site in Danvers and then they walked to Tremont Street right before Mack Park in Salem where the tunnel was blocked off. Sounded like a true story, it might be fabricated? The curious thing though, if it was true, Salem had too many stories to allow the military to walk through their tunnels….

Well in fact it was the Second Corp of Cadets in 1801, the descendants of the first National Guard Unit in the country founded in 1637, who built the tunnels in Salem. Why not keep up the tradition?
