Fangs dont feign

Discovered a century ago this coming December, Hawver Cave’s mysteries are being unlocked again.

Gene Lorance, a state Department of Parks environmental resource specialist, has been overseeing a project for the past 1? years that is shedding renewed light on a cave that yielded a treasure trove of prehistoric animal bones from 1906 to 1910 but has been out of the public eye since then.

In recent weeks, the Parks Department has moved to install gates on the entranceways to limestone-mining tunnels leading to the storied cave. Lorance said that those gates could eventually swing open to the public for tours, with an electric train taking passengers into its darkened reaches. – abj
