    Lost River Caverns

    Lost River Caverns

    Lost River Caverns is a natural limestone cavern. It was discovered in 1883 by a limestone quarry operation which was digging where the parking lot now stands. The operation accidentally created the entrance to the cave. Since that is the only entrance to the caverns, there aren't any bats, rats or snakes or any Native Americans, dinosaurs or cavemen in the cave. In 1930, the caverns were opened to the public & at that time walkways, handrails & lighting were added. Other than that, Lost River Caverns is a completely natural cave. According to geologists, Lost River Caverns started forming within the past 250,000 years. It was formed by the work of the water table dissolving away the limestone to form the chambers & passageways. The water table has since dropped, allowing seepage from rainfall & melting snow to remove minerals from the rock above the caverns, deposit them on the rock surface & building up to varying formations.
