These Two Missouri Mansions are Connected By a Secret Tunnel [PHOTOS]


These Victorian-style mansions in Carthage, MO look like they’re neighbors, but they’re actually connected by a secret underground tunnel.

Originally built by Dr. John Carter, a prominent landowner, the mansions include a combined eight bedrooms, eleven bathrooms and close to 17,000 square feet of living space.

The historic homes feature ornate woodwork, tall ceilings and stained glass. They also boast luxurious details like marble fireplaces, crystal chandeliers and beautifully restored details.

The property is over twelve acres in size and also includes an additional small building, a train caboose, a chapel-type room with soaring ceilings and a carved wooden throne at the center.

But the coolest feature is hidden underground. Down under the surface there’s a long underground tunnel that connects the two houses and is the perfect hiding place (or escape route) for someone with a lot of secrets.
