It was announced today that Howe Caverns has opened up its first new tour since 1900.  The tour comes at the end of the underground river boat ride.  Where the boat usually headed back to the starting point, now visitors are invited to exit the boat and walk through a newly opened stretch of the cavern

Those adventurous enough must don special clothing and boots to continue on and, since there are no lights, each guest will wear a hard hat with a light on it to guide their way.  This part of the cavern was the original opening to the cave and those walking through this area can actually see where guests in 1900 signed their names on the cave walls!  Hence the name of this new part of the Howe Caverns experience....Signature Rock Discovery Tour!
