Window to the Underground

One of the easiest ways to catch a glimpse of the Eureka Underground is to peer through the metal grate in the sidewalk in front of 8 S. Main Street. If you have a flashlight or a camera with flash, you should be able to see some of the old windows from the original level of the storefront. This building seems to have a high business turnover rate, having played host to clothing stores and an old soda shop in recent years. There is also a trellised space between this building and the next, through which one can see steps leading down to the underground level. The new underground walking tour being offered by the Downtown Network allows you to descend these steps and get an inside glimpse of the basement level.
