Salt Cave

3504 E Ave G, Hutchinson, Kansas 67501 USA

“Formed over 275 million years ago”

The Hutchinson Salt Member of the Permian Wellington Formation was formed about 275 million years ago when the Permian Sea dried up. One of the largest in the world, the extent of this bedded salt deposit is 27,000 square miles in central and south-central Kansas and is marginal to Permian Basin salt deposits in Oklahoma, the Texas Panhandle, and southeastern New Mexico that cover 100,000 square miles.  The purest portion of the salt vein at this location is 650 feet underground and is still mined here today. Strataca has access to about 300,000 square feet of mined out area. What is a day in the life of a miner really like? Come to Strataca and find out. Experience the Myron-mobile, a post-apocalyptic looking car that was driven through the salt mine by Mike Rowe, the host of the Discovery Channel's popular show, Dirty Jobs. Take a trip back in time to see how different the mining process was from modern day practices. You’ll have an opportunity to hear from individuals throughout every step of the mining process.
