This photo of Oneonta Tunnel was taken and hand-tinted by Cross and Dimmitt, who sold both sepia-tone and hand-colored photographic prints at Vista House. It was built in 1914 - one of four tunnels on the Historic Columbia River Highway.

Closed in 1948, it was restored and re-opened to bicycle and pedestrian traffic in 2009, after years of planning, fund-raising and hard work. Unfortunately in the fall of 2017 the Eagle Creek wildfire burned all of the timber bracing inside the tunnel, effectively destroying its utility. As of this writing (2018) the area around the tunnel remains closed to the public.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
