Boerne: Cascade Caverns


Cascade Caverns was discovered by the Lipan Apache in the 1700s as evidenced by artifacts and a cave fireplace. Kendall County youth in the 1840s rediscovered the cave and carved their initials in stalactites in the Caverns’ first room. Local stories about what was then called “Hester’s Cave” after the owner, were adapted into a German language novel that was published in the 1870s and later translated into English. Although not commercially operated until the early 1930s, Cascade Caverns is the first of the six Texas cave attractions to have been discovered and has been entertaining folks ever since.
