Dunbar Cave State Park

Dunbar Cave Tours

Archaeological excavations revealed that the cave has been occupied by man for thousands of years, drawn by its constant stream flow and shelter provided at the mouth of the cave. One of the unique features of the cave is Mississippian Native American iconography, dating from approximately 1350 AD. Dunbar Cave was a sacred place to the people. Religious symbols including concentric circles, rayed suns, and an anthropomorphic warrior figure were drawn and carved on the walls of the cave and can be seen on the tour.
