Wabasha Street CavesSt. Paul, Minnesota http://www.wabashastreetcaves.com/ Looking like a mini castle built into the side of a cliff, the Wabasha Street Caves probably aren't what you think they are. First off, they aren't actually caves. They were made in the 1840s and have served a range of functions over the years. And, second, despite the rustic look and being caves of a sort, they aren't located out in the country. They're in downtown St. Paul, minutes from the airport.

In the 1800s, construction crews cut through mountains, soared over rivers, twisted around bends, and drove straight into towns and cities to build railroad lines that swept across the land like an iron and steel wildfire. On May 10, 1869, a seminal moment in railroad history, a golden spike was pounded into the final tie to officially commemorate the completion of the transcontinental railroad. Railroads would connect states and nations, forever tying people and business together.

Haunted railroad lore runs the full line of ...
