Exploring a Mystery Tunnel Under Brookfield, Connecticut
WARNING: Under no circumstances should you enter this property. By doing so you risk bodily harm and/or prosecution for trespassing on private property.
Brookfield, Connecticut is a sleepy New England town with plenty of history and mystery when you discover a little-known tunnel under the town.
According to public documents from 2014, there are 16,452 people that occupy the area. Brookfield has an abundance of ridges and valleys and the town sits between Candlewood Lake and the Housatonic River. Brookfield is scenic above and below ground. I've worked here for 22 years and I thought I'd seen every inch of town, but I was recently informed otherwise.
A Curious Excursion in an Underground Brookfield Tunnel
I'm sorry, I'm not going to tell you where this is, or how to get there. I have to work in this community and I'm not going to be the guy responsible for a rash of trespassing. The last time I did an extensive gallery about Brookfield, people got super pissed. They acted as I'd done something to hurt them.
It was an article called "Vacant Brookfield Properties That Give Me the Creeps." I got all these veiled threats about not going to these spots again. Third-hand whispers, tell him, so and so said don't go there again. Blah, blah blah. These ugly properties are right there for everyone to look at. Should we pretend like they are not there? Should we act as if they are not an eyesore for the community?
This has been one of the more eye-opening things I've learned from doing my job. There are actually people who cannot stomach when someone points out what is wrong with their community, especially when they may be responsible.
