Day trip to Black Coffey Caverns


Between 1932 and 1954 Black-Coffey Cavern was a thriving commercial cave located in Franklin County, PA. Then, it was left abandoned for nearly 70 years until February 2021. The new owners open there home and the cave on some weekends. The cave entrance is in the basement of the house. The cave is about a 2-hour drive from DC and this is the first DC Grotto trip to the cave. Sign-up information will be sent to the Grotto's email list on January 9th.
