Visit Indian Caverns - Spruce Creek, PA



From the early Nineteenth Century, the residents of Franklinville thought that the cave situated along the banks of Spruce Creek ended in a small room where local settlers scratched their names and the dates of their visitsóthe earliest being 1816. They may also have thought that they were among the first to explore the several rooms and passages of the cave.

All that changed in 1928 when a curious and adventurous young couple made their first visit to the cave. Harold A. "Hubby" Wertz, Sr. and his wife, Lenore, were from nearby Tyrone and were avid spelunkers. When they reached what was believed to be the deepest chamber of the cavern, Hubby observed that the room was primarily formed by erosion rather than solution. He figured that the water which had formed the cave had to have flowed somewhere from that room. He and Lenore started digging around in the clay floor and discovered a small opening, less than twelve inches in diameter which proved to be the entrance to an extensive new section of cave. What they eventually found was to nearly triple the size of the cave system as it had previously been known.
