This limestone cave, formed by an underground river thousands of years ago, has become a tourist attraction, but during its long history it has also served as a refuge for Indians, confederate soldiers, bandits ... and it was even a speakeasy during the time of Prohibition. Today it can be visited throughout the year, and is perfectly safe. Concerts have even been performed here, taking advantage of the natural acoustics.
