Live from the Sutro Tunnel Historic Site our speakers will talk about the historic Sutro Tunnel and townsite of Sutro, NV, located in present-day Dayton, NV. This presentation will be broadcast live from the historic Sutro Tunnel Site to see the work that the friend’s group has accomplished to date.

The talk will share the history of Adolph Sutro, the visionary of the Sutro Tunnel, as well as the history of the Tunnel itself. The Tunnel was created to drain excess, nuisance water from the Comstock Lode's mines in and around Virginia City, NV as well as provide transportation to and from the Comstock.

Learn why the Tunnel was an engineering marvel and remains a draw for history-lovers today.
