Bluff Dwellers Cavern

Updated: Feb 25, 2012 04:22 PM

The Bluff Dwellers Cavern has something you don't normally hear in a cave, music.

Jennifer Rosson, "Because of the way, the formations, they are hollow within and they realized with a light tap these formations could create different tones".

A favorite part, of the family's cave owners.

Ray Bunch,"you know as a kid growing up having my mom give tours and my aunt give tours through here, everyone's like wow when they see that and really enjoys that part of the cave".

The cave entrances were hidden for more than 3,000 years, before being found.

In 1925 Arther Browning discovered the cave when he was hunting outside and felt cool air coming up from a ground hog hole a few years later the cave opened up for its first tour, a few years after that it was used for a fall out shelter, now open for 85 years.

Anna Gann,"we just came here, they told us to come here instead of the church and stuff and that's like my uncles you know he wouldn't come in because he was scared of caves and closed in places, so I would say what are you going to do if you blow away, he just said well I'll stand outside the door".

Albino crayfish and an unbroken 10 ton sheet of limestone balancing on a rock are highlights of the tour and add to the cave's uniqueness.

Alec Laughlin,"you learn a lot about the cave and some of how the formations were formed".

Ray Bunch,"its has an amazing history, its a beautiful cave, in the future we'll maybe look at adding some more attractions to make it more of a complete destination for families".
