If tunnel walls could talk

Many stories about spaces more fantasy than fact
George Foster, owner of the Grand Imperial Hotel in Silverton, shines a flashlight through the remains of a tunnel under Greene Street. Unlike Durango’s tunnels, used to store coal, Foster said the tunnel in Silverton actually served as a passage to what was then a bar across Greene Street.
In this photograph, circa 1895, three men are seen with a horse-drawn coal cart on Durango’s Main Avenue. Coal was delivered in carts like this to Main Avenue businesses.
This rubble is in a tunnel under the sidewalk of Main Avenue next to El Rancho Tavern in Durango.
