Discover the stories from limestone bedrocks dating back to 460 million years ago.
Seneca Caverns is made up of limestone bedrocks that are millions of years old. The Seneca Caverns were first used in the 1400s when the Seneca Indians would use them as a place to stay when traveling on a trade route. Over 300 years later, a German farmer found it, and these caverns were passed on through his family members until it was sold and subsequently became a tourist attraction in 1930.

The tour of the cavern allows you to see the different formations that have formed over the years.

In addition to the cavern, there is also a gemstone mine where participants can look for and dig up gemstones as a keepsake.
