Welcome to the
Ray's Hill/Sideling Hill/
Laurel Hill Tunnel and Abandoned
Pennsylvania Turnpike Website!



(Photo used by permission; M. Dakelman)

Dedicated to the history and preservation of
the abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike sections.


I hope to make this website a place for everyone to share their stories and read those of others who have been to the abandoned
Pennsylvania Turnpike and seen and maybe photographed the scenery.  I will fund this site for the next year at least and if the popularity is there,
I will continue to do so.

NOTE:   I am looking for co-authors and contributors of stories of your visits to the old abandoned turnpike and your pictures.  
I welcome your shared pictures and experiences from both the days before the roadway and tunnels became open to the public, as well as your
stories and pictures since 2001.  Please know that all credit due will be given for your sharing of your stories as well as your pictures.  

If you have an existing site that you would like to have either linked to this site or would like to move your site to mine,
I would be happy to work out agreements for that as well.  

I need any help that you can offer!   Thanks!   Ray  :-)
