Enjoy one of the World’s most incredible engineering feats!

The Horseshoe Curve was constructed entirely by men with picks, shovels, horses, and drags, and was opened to traffic, February 15, 1854. Since then, countless numbers of people have visited the site and have been thrilled by the sight of trains circling this great amphitheatre high in the Alleghenies.
