Brentwood Tunnels

Speculation has raged for decades about secret underground tunnels in downtown Brentwood. They may very well be Brentwood’s best and longest kept secret.

“We’ve always heard there was a tunnel from The Torres Saloon to Rolando’s across the street,” said Contra Costa County historian and Byron resident Kathy Leighton. 

Underground tunnels do in fact exist in Brentwood. They run between Sweeney’s and the Boards ‘N’ More/Moxy building, and they are also rumored to lead to other locations.
