Cincinnati’s Secret Subway – A Sad and Sorry Tale

Spent millions digging tunnels
Through the rock and shale
Abandoned never finished
What a sorry tale


Union Terminal. Now only houses a dilapidated closed IMAX theatre and a closed museum.



In 1925 Cincinnati tried, and failed, to build one of America’s first subway.
Never completed and never used. You can go on a tour but it is sealed off forever.
