“millions of years in the making”

Formed millions of years ago by an underground river cutting through solid limestone rock, the Olentangy Indian Caverns today offer an exciting excursion into ancient Indian lore with a maze of beautiful winding passages and spacious underground rooms. There is evidence that the Wyandotte Indians used these caverns as a haven from the weather and from their enemies, the Delaware Indians. One of the large rooms contains "Council Rock", used by the Wyandotte's. The first white man believed to have entered the caverns was J. M. Adams, a member of a westbound wagon train that camped nearby in 1821. During the night one of his oxen broke loose and wandered off. In the morning the ox was found dead at the bottom of the entrance to the ancient Indian cavern. After exploring the entrance, Adams carved his name and date on the wall.

I heard mixed reviews but I've lived in columbus now for 10 years so I though I should give it a shot. It was really neat to see and learn some local history. I'm glad that I went here before going to other cave locations. If I had gone here afterwards I would have been a bit disappointed but for kids and anyone who has never seen caverns before I'd definitely suggest stopping by.
