Entrance Buildings, Endless Caverns

sign for cavernThe limestone buildings at the cavern entrance were built from stone excavated out of the cave when the pathways were widened and leveled.

There's a souvenir shop with a small selection of snacks and a few exhibits. The over-sized bat on the ceiling is not real, but there are some brown bats that live in the cave in the winter, we were told.


When we emerged from the underground tour, I thought I would take some pictures but condensation covered my lens from the change in temperature. The temperature had been 54 F. in the cave but was at least 80 outside.

I wiped off the moisture but my subjects had walked on.



Endless Caverns first opened for public tours 95 years ago. The walking tour is guided and there are some steep steps and slippery spots due to moisture. I certainly recommend a visit but wear appropriate shoes and a sweatshirt.

  1. I was in school with some of the family who owned it, of course that was 30 years ago. I think they were two sets of twins which kind of gets your attention.

  2. A neat place to visit. Your condensation shot does add a mysterious quality to the photo.

  4. I had a day last week where the humidity was so bad several of my shots had a condensation feel to them.

    The fake bat would give my aunt the shivers!
