Most Columbia, South Carolina natives – and even today’s students at USC – have heard the tall tales behind the legendary “Third Eye Man” that supposedly lived in the sewer under the university campus.
In addition to the tunnel where Third Eye Man lived, there have always been rumors about another secret tunnel system that exists under the city. A series of secret tunnels that supposedly connect the Capital City to the river. But there just isn’t much evidence to prove the tunnels exist.
In 2010 Anderson Burns, a former reporter for ABC Columbia, captured footage from two different sets of secret tunnels hiding under Columbia in his series, Hidden Columbia. We’ve posted pic on the website so you can see these tunnels actually existed in the Columbia area and still do !!.
