17 Views

⁣Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Childersburg,
Alabama, DeSoto Caverns is a site rich in history. In 1796, George
Stiggens, a presidential agent, wrote to President George Washington
describing the beauty of the cave, making DeSoto Caverns the first
cavern on record in the United States. In addition to being the first
cavern on record, DeSoto Caverns is also noted for having one of the
largest accumulations of onyx-marble stalagmites and stalactites in the
world. The caverns have regular tours every hour that allow guests to
learn about caverns in general and about the history of this beautiful
subterranean wonder. There are over twenty attractions on the land above
the cave, making DeSoto Caverns the perfect visit for those seeking
adventure, the great outdoors, and fun with family or friends.
