Brockville Railway Tunnel


Incorporated in 1832, Brockville is one of Canada's oldest municipalities and one of its oldest railway centres. The Grand Trunk Railway connected Brockville and Montreal in 1855. This historic Tunnel was completed 21 years before construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway even began and predates all of the rail tunnels in the Western Rockies. Controversial for its time, our Tunnel was a major feat of engineering and it remains a remarkable example of Canada's pre-Confederation industrial heritage. The Tunnel was re-opened in August 2017, featuring a modern light show and sound system. It is open from dawn 'til dusk daily.
