Discover the cave like the first explorers. Walk through the cave using only lanterns. Feel as though you are one of the first people to ever see the cave. 

Cave of the Mounds was accidentally discovered during a quarry blast. The first who entered were quarry workers, a farmer, and a 17-year-old boy. They were the first to ever lay eyes on the cave as there are no natural entrances. No animal or human had ever seen the cave until 1939.

Today there are more than 400 known caves in the state of Wisconsin but often found in people's backyards like this one. In fact, cave explorers find hundreds of caves in America each year!
