The Sewer / Re: Sneech Pond, Cumberland, RI Copper Mine Part Two
« Last post by skullduggery on October 16, 2017, 02:42:15 PM »
H Insane Bunkers,

its been a long while, but thought I'd add an update to this page. We recently did a story on RI gold mine from the past that included the Copper Hill Mine. Along with the story we have a google map showing its location, and a video looking inside the now blocked 200' tunnel. We thought you might be interested. Here is the link. Enjoy!

Weird Shit / Re: Abandon Tunnel in Providence
« Last post by eger.joan on September 17, 2017, 06:24:47 PM »
When I loved on benefit street from 1969 to 1971. There were many slave tunnels that ran from the river up to a few places on the east side.  One rant to the house I lived in.   One ran to what eS then known as the Geary Mansion. Another rant to another house that was torn down to build one of the buildings at Brown. I think it was the engineering bldg or education building.  Not sure.  There was a bus tunnel that went UNDER Benefit street  and about 100 yards in to the tunnel there was an old iron door that had a huge area that was reputed to have been a selling stage and a couple of tunnels running down to the river.  The  river has been moved twice since those days and I am not sure if the tunnels or how many of the tunnels still exist.   RISD. Bought the old Stone Bank building, so I would check out the old bus tunnel  it's the next street/ hill to the left of the gold domed ex bank building.  There was a tunnel that went in the direction of that building so likely that a RISD professor could have discovered it.  Back then I had a book that had a map of the slave tunnels of Providence and the east side.  I don't know who it was published by,  but after exploring quite a few,  I think you probably are speaking about one of those and not a train tunnel

Weird Shit / Re: Insanely Huge Junkyard (W. Greenwich)

Hello, all!

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but some friends and I went down here today while scouting around WG for film locations.  After poking around near the front near what seems to be a trailer-turned-guardshack, one of the guys who works with Junior pulled up.  We spoke with him about using part of the property to film, and he said absolutely not.  They really don't want anyone up there unless you want to buy a car.  I guess the state has been busting their balls for a while about wanting him to clear the place out.  Also, the publicity they've received from camera-savvy explorers posting videos online has resulted in tens of thousands in stolen parts over the last few years.

Makes sense to respect their wishes.  The guy we spoke to was very nice and they have a pretty solid case for not wanting people up there.  We made it a little bit up the hill before he arrived (it's a mudslide by the way) and it seems that all the cars you can see on the trail via Google are gone.  Nothing really to see besides an old tractor and a rooster that has taken residence out front.
