Blue Ridge Tunnel: Western Portal Stone

This two-piece portal stone, or plaque, once filled the now-empty space you see at the highest point of the western portal entry arch. The western portal stone was placed in the early 1900’s, well after the tunnel was first built in the 1850’s. Join the Blue Ridge Tunnel Foundation and Nelson County Parks and Recreation in restoring and returning this piece of history back to the Crozet Tunnel.
