Urban Excavating


In 2012 we discovered a tunnel under the street in the bowels of an old building at 31 N Saginaw, Pontiac. Below what today is a wine shop and wine cellar is another full floor of beauty. The tunnel could have a romantic story, but more likely was the street level in the 1860s when the original building was built. The streets were raised to reduce flooding and install 'modern sewers'. It was easier to raise streets than to dig lower to put in plumbing. Sio this may have once been the front door.


Come visit and see it today. Matt Russell the new building owner is creating his own legacy with Danny Martinez and The Alley Cat Cafe.
