Tunnels coming out of City Hall on both sides! Pictures are slow coming forward. Many mayors of Salem were involved in smuggling.

Tunnels were also connected to the Old Town Hall, and the Town House that sat in the middle of Washington Street. The train tunnel that led to the secret train station went under the original Town House on Washington Street.

Josiah Orne who owned the property before City Hall was built was one of the smugglers in town who  had his basement connected. City Hall was built on his original foundation with the tunnels already attached.
