Virginia's most historic and Unique Cave
Event Venue & Historic Civil War Caverns Tours
Underground History of the Civil War
Thanks to the unique protection that the caverns provide from the effects of time and the elements, your tour of the caverns allows you to see this historic site in much the same condition that Union soldiers would have experienced over 150 years ago.
Walk through the very places where the soldiers lived, ate and slept. You’ll see where they stored their provisions and how they moved them up and down between the caverns and the surface. You’ll see over 150 names and drawings that were etched or written by the soldiers themselves.
