Century of Cave Adventuring!
Did you know that touring caves was one of the first types of tourism in the Ozarks? From the early 1820’s city folks would set out for the “hill country” in their “model T’s” on a bright spring day. Their destination? One of the many caves found beneath the rolling hills of the Ozarks. Climbing down wooden ladders, stepping along narrow paths, and led by local guides who held lanterns for light, these adventurous folk discovered beauty and connection with nature long before the advent of eco-tourism.
