Cave Discovery

Cave May Have Been Part Of Underground Railroad

Feb 6, 2013

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A cave that has held up construction of a coal ash landfill in Trimble County may have more significance than first thought - it might have been a stop on the Underground Railroad.

The Courier-Journal reports historian Alicestyne Turley, who was hired by LG&E to study markings found in the cave, said in a report that she thinks it served as a place for slaves to hide as they traveled North toward freedom.
