A Dance Hall for Mastodons

Created by water seeping into the Hill Country limestone bedrock, Longhorn Cavern State Park has a rich history. Evidence of Ice Age animal remains have been discovered in the cave through its fossil findings, and in more recent years—that is, in this past millennium—the caves were used by the Comanche Indians as well as Confederate soldiers who turned them into a secret chamber for the production of gun powder. The caverns were even, briefly, a dance hall (in the 1920s). Since 1932, Longhorn Cavern has been a state park, and daily cave tours cover just over a mile of the underground tunnels and last about an hour and twenty minutes.
