Desoto Caverns Attraction


Desoto Caverns Attraction 
Childersburg, Alabama

DeSoto Caverns Attraction is the first recorded cave in the United States and is well-known for having one of the largest continuing accumulations of onyx-marble stalagmites and stalactites in the world. There are many local legends about the cave, including that it was inhabited by Native Americans, it was a source of minerals used in the Civil War, and that during WWII there was a dance floor and honky-tonk in the huge main room. Visitors can tour the caverns beginning in that main underground room which is 12 stories high and larger than a football field. On the tour you will see thousands of cave formations—one of the most concentrated collections in America. Every tour features a light show inside the caverns—the most popular is the Creation Light Show based on the book of Genesis.
