The Discovery of Grand Caverns: Augusta County, Virginia

Loading...
Grand Caverns in Grottoes, Virginia was discovered by Bernard Weyer in 1804. For 200 years there was 3800 feet of surveyed passages. In the spring of 2004 a new section was discovered by VAR cavers and by the end of 2005, an additional 2.8 miles was added making the Grand Caverns a total 3.82 miles long. This program will show the discoveries that were made and the challenges confronted by the cavers as they mapped the new areas. Because of the fragile nature and the difficulty in reaching this new discovery, the public will not be allowed to see these beautifully decorated rooms and passages in person. This program will attempt to show beyond the "tight crawls" and "small squeezes" into the 'other' Grand Caverns.
