Explore Mammoth Cave through the many, many pictures on this site, pictures both current and historic. This is an extensive site that tells the history of Mammoth Cave from its first mention in historical records in 1797. Be sure to visit each section of the cave so you can get a good feel for its enormity. The cutaways show where visitors are able to go now, about 12 miles of the estimated 600 or so miles of passages. Of course, there is a great deal of geological information too about this incredible natural wonder. The explanation of how the cave and its passages were formed is very easy to understand, but if you want more detailed geology, it’s there too.
