The Hudson River Tunnel

On February 20, 1908 a "party of friends" which included two Miss Erxmeyers, Mr. F Erxmeyer, Mr. H. Erxmeyer and Mr. E. Erxmeyer and Miss Volkman walked through the new Tunnel from Hoboken to New York. (Jersey Journal, Feb 28. 1908). Miss Volkmann married Frederick Erxmeyer junior. See Erxmeyer

My grandmother, Meta Petermann Land, and her sister, Annie Petermann Wulpern, always said that they walked through the tunnel before it opened. See Petermann

The Hudson River Tunnel was formally opened on February 25, 1908. The first train through the tunnel went from Manhattan to Hoboken. The trip was initiated by President Teddy Roosevelt when he pressed a button at the White House in Washington, D. C.. See The New York Times
