DescriptionGlimpse millions of years in one moment, rushing rivers and waterfalls rarely seen in caves carry over a million gallons of water daily through Squire Boone Caverns. Stalactities, stalagmites, flowstone, and more adorn the cavern walls, ceilings, and floors. Squire Boone and his brother Daniel discovered the cave in 1790, later Squire would use the cave to hide from hostile Indians. Squire, his wife and their four sons and their families settled in the area. Squire died in 1815 and was laid to rest in the cave. He also built a grist mill and carved an inscription on one the foundation stones which can still be seen today. Squire Boone's Mill is listed on the Indiana State Register of Historic Sites and Structures. Cave Tours depart at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. during the fall, winter and spring, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the summer. The Village is handicap accessible and is open during the summer only from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Squire Boone Zipline Adventures zips you through the scenic forests and ravines in a way you have never experienced before.
