Louisville Mega Cavern
Louisville is home to one of the largest caverns in the United StatesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦so large, it has been dubbed the Ã¢â‚¬Å“MEGAÃ¢â‚¬Â Cavern.
It was created by a massive limestone quarryÃ¢â‚¬â€with miners blasting out a mind-boggling amount of rock for over 42 years during the middle of the 20th century. It was acquired in 1989 by private investors who saw the potential to develop a portion of the cavern into an environmentally-conscious high security commercial storage facility. For the past 17 years, a massive amount of recycled concrete, brick, block, rock and dirt were (and continue to be) off-loaded at the cavern to fill in the holes and create floors and internal roads. Construction to carve out offices and storage spaces is ongoing, making just a dent in the more than 4,000,000 square feet of space. Even though itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s underground, the Louisville MEGA Cavern is actually the largest building in the state of KentuckyÃ¢â‚¬â€and by tonnage is the largest recycling center in the state. Now you can experience all the wonder and adventure of this unique attraction.
