“tour through brilliantly lighted chambers”

A forty-minute guided tour through brilliantly lighted chambers features the history, formations and geological aspects of the caverns.The Crystal Grottoes Caverns were founded in 1920 when the State Roads Commission was quarrying for limestone to build up and pave State Route 34. After successfully quarrying back a cliff that was 35 to 55 feet high and 150 feet deep, an unusual event occurred. The next time they started to drill, they lost their drill bits in the cave. Later, when dynamite was detonated in the drill holes, the first entrance was produced.

A nice stop on our trip route home to stretch our legs and experience some natural beauty! The guide was very knowledgable about the formations and we learned a lot about caves and enjoyed the cool underground temperature for the 30 minute tour.
