Old Man's Cave, Ohio

  Old Man's Cave "This recess cave was named for the "old man" Richard Rowe, a recluse who made the cave his home in the 1800s and is a part of the scenic Hocking Hills State Park, Hocking comes from the Wyandot Indian word "hockhocking" referring to the Hocking River's bottle shaped gorge near Lancaster. Streams and percolating groundwater carved the hollows and caves in this area from layers of sandstone bedrock that vary in hardness. The hollows moist, cool climate preserves more typically northern tree species such as eastern hemlock trees and Canada yew, which have persisted since the glaciers retreated 15,000 years ago.
