Seneca Caverns-Bellevue Ohio

This past Sunday, my family and I took a day trip to Bellevue, OH to visit Seneca Caverns. My dad actually discovered it when we were planning a trip over the Canada Day/4th of July Weekend. Instead, we went to Sault Ste Marie.

When we first arrived, we thought it might be a tourist trap. We weren’t quite sure what we were expecting. But I’ve got to say it was very cool and interesting. Honestly, my pictures don’t do it justice.

History

The caverns were discovered in 1872 by two young boys who here rabbit hunting with their dog. The dog disappeared into the brush, where the boys found an opening and fell through the natural sinkhole leading to the first level of the caverns.

The owner who bought the caverns in the 1930’s, was putting in handrails in some places and decided to leave the bag of cement down there over night. When he came back the next morning, the cement bag had turned into a rock because of the humidity.

I don’t know if you can tell by the picture above, but after the first step there is water. I wouldn’t have known it was there until the tour guide said something.

I do apologize for not having the greatest pictures. I wish I had a wider lens with me. It was also really hard to take pictures while walking. I had to wait until we stopped. I also planned on shooting more pictures of my outfit but it had started to pour. Guess I’ll have to shoot it another time.
