WorldBlue  In short

Enormous, shallow cave in the limestone bluff at Ohio River. For millennia it has served as a shelter for local people. The cave with its 17 meters wide entrance is well visible from the river and has been inhabited also by local gangs – river pirates in the late 18th century and later.
