More From Luray Caverns





 This is one of the many famous stalagmites in Luray Caverns. It is called the Princess formation. Here's why: "A skeleton, thought to be that of a Native American girl, found in one of the chasms, was estimated, from the current rate of stalagmitic growth, to be not more than 500 years old. Her remains may have slipped into the caverns after her burial hole collapsed due to a sinkhole, although the real cause is unknown." (source)
