Tunnels were numbered sequentially on the Great Northernís route west from St. Paul, MN. This was consequently the fourteenth in existence when it was built in 1892. It was bypassed and abandoned in 1929. When the line opened, it was the only tunnel between Scenic and Wellington. The east entrance has collapsed.
