cave 001.jpgCathedral Caverns was originally called Bats Cave. Jacob (Jay) Gurley bought the cave in 1955 and opened it to the public. When he took his wife into the caverns for the first time, she was struck by the beauty of one big room with all the stalagmites and stalactites and said that it looked like a "cathedral". Gurley changed the name of the cave to Cathedral Caverns. Cathedral Caverns became a state park in 1987. It includes 461 acres of land near Grant, AL. The caverns reopened to the public in August, 2000.
