Visitor Tips and News About The Underground
Be sure to call and make an appointment if you plan to visit this one! We were disappointed when we showed up and found out the tours run by appointment only. There aren't visible stairs from the street. You have to go into the Wolf Hotel to get to the Underground.[TX Visitor, 06/30/2016]
Underground city located in Ellinwood, KS. A tour of the underground is very interesting and enjoyable. At one time the underground ran for two blocks on both sides of the downtown area of Ellinwood. You could enter on one side cross the street underground and come up in another store. During prohibition there were 11 open saloons operating underground. Today you can view an old barber shop complete with bullet holes in the wall from past arguments, a bath house, livery stable and more. An interesting place to stop and tour.[Nina Flick, 06/23/2003]
