Manitou Cave Tour

Experience a cave hike into one of Alabama’s oldest attractions that is now closed to the public. This cave was known as the Church of the Cherokee before and during the Native American Removal and the Trail of Tears.  

Participants will visit the large public meeting room, the secret tribal elder’s room, and the private Shaman (or priest) chambers where the drumming rock still sends powerful messages throughout the chambers of this cave system. Signatures dating back to the early 19th century include one of George Guess (which was the English name of the creator of the Cherokee alphabet).

Date:      Saturday, February 17, 2007
Where:   Near Ft. Payne, AL
Time:     10:00 a.m.—1:00 p.m.
Fee:       $15 per person
