Squire Boone Caverns is much more than just a cave tour. It’s set up to look like a little pioneer town with unique shops to explore. They also have gemstone mining, a grist mill, and a zipline adventure. Since we were heading back home, we just did the cave tour.

Rock of Ages cave formation at Squire Boone Caverns

The cave had some impressive formations. Highlights of the tour include the largest rimstone dam in the United States, the Rock of Ages, and Squire Boone’s remains.

Squire Boone was the brother of Daniel Boone. He found the caverns by accident when escaping from Indians and later returned to the area to make it his home. He actually was buried in the same cave that he fell into. His bones are interred in a coffin in the cave.

During our visit, the designs were rolling a bit short on copper pennies, so it cut off some of the text at the top of the design.  In the photo below, you can see what the designs were intended to look like.
