We visited the Stumphouse Tunnel and Issaqueenna Falls near Walhalla, SC. The tunnel was started to connect Charleston with Chattanooga, Tn. in the 1850s. Construction ended with the outbreak of the Civil War and for lack of funds. Clemson University used the tunnel in the 1920s to cure it's blue cheese. A conservation effort in 2007 saved the area around the tunnel, including Issaqueena Falls from development. The small park is now operated by the City of Walhalla, SC.

Issaqueena Falls received it's name from a Native American women who was said to have either jumped from the top of the falls, or hid just below the falls to escape capture.
