The draining tunnel, constructed in the early 1900s, is the center of several urban legends. One of the tales recounts that the tunnel is haunted by the ghost of a young girl, who after escaping a nearby burning farm building with her clothing ablaze, died within its walls. Other variants of the legend say that the girl was set on fire by her enraged father after he loses custody of his children after a nasty divorce.
