The Bogastow Brook Viaduct and the Highland Tunnel were both built in 1846 by the Boston and Worcester Railroad. The viaduct is an 8-arch bridge of granite and rubble fill that crosses the Bogastow Brook and also spans what was the tailrace of the former Darling Woolen Mills. The tunnel is constructed in a unique horseshoe shape with stone exterior and brick interior.
