On Easter weekend, the caves began a new tourist season-- it's always closed during the winter months to allow the formations time to recover.

The caves are in their natural state-- no colored lights or painted surfaces.
The growth is steady, but slow--just one cubic inch every 100 to 400 years.
Natural Bridge Caverns are the deepest on the east coast....their lowest point dropping 347- feet underground.

There's no documentation or official discovery date of the caves.
But the story surrounding its development is legendary--

AT THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY, WHEN THE OTHER MEN LEFT, NOBODY ELSE WANTED TO BE IN HERE FOR QUITE A WHILE. )) [RUNS:20]
But these days, there are plenty of visitors brave enough to see what lies "down under"--
Just remember to wear good walking shoes, watch for low ceilings... and don't be too afraid if you happen to hear "Emma's" cries.
