North Carolina’s only show caverns, Linville Caverns NC weren’t discovered until 1837 when members of a fishing expedition lead by Henry E. Colton noticed what looked like fish swimming through solid rock. Curious, the members of the fishing party found an opening in the mountain that was large enough for them to climb into. Once inside, the men were astonished by what they saw: They were surrounded by a marvelous natural amphitheater, full of massive stalactites, stalagmites, and other unique geological formations. It wasn’t until 1937 that Linville Caverns NC were open for public tours. Since then, various improvements on lighting and pathways have created the safe, exciting touring experience that the countless visitors to Linville Caverns NC have come to know and love. Friendly, knowledgeable staff members guide visitors through the caverns, pointing out the most interesting of the caverns’ features, and all who enter marvel at the sight of the incredible scene that awaits them when they step into the world that exists inside Humpback Mountain in Linville NC.
