Bluff Dwellers Cavern is home to many unique formations. The cave is littered with stalactites and stalagmites.
The Musical Chimes
One of our most famous, the Musical Chimes is widely known as the very beginning of “hard rock.” The Chimes are formed by hollow curtains of rock that are hollow within, producing a unique frequency similar to a xylophone. This formation has been an icon at Bluff Dwellers Cavern since its inception in 1927. Many of the tour guides are one of a kind musicians at playing the Chimes. Formed from hollow curtains of rock , the Chimes are just one of many attractions inside the cavern that instill a sense of wonder in children of all ages.

75′ Rimstone Dam
One of the most interesting geological formations is the 75′ rimstone dam located near the original discovery point of the cavern Measuring at 75′ the dam is one of the biggest mysteries at Bluff Dwellers Cavern. The long barrier is nearly symetrical on both sides and even makes a similar curve on both ends. The real intriguing thing about the Dam is that Geological Scientist still haven’t determined how it was formed!
