(Upworthy)   Let's take a tour of a house with a cave in the basement. There is a video. Subby's dad took him in with the previous owner many years ago. Nice to see it get some new views   ( divider line

I can't figure out if that's a natural cave or a cave created via mining. Any idea?

Reminds of IL Caverns outside of St.Louis went there as a Boy Scout the caretaker was a guy whose family had owned the land and given it to the state provided they could continue living on it.

I guess the only "issue" was he use to winter in the cave and would wash himself in the water and apparently visitors didn't like seeing a naked old man during their caving adventures.

Armon was his name and no matter where you went in that cave, if you thought you had crawled your way to a new discovery eventually you would see his name and the date he discovered it somewhere along the wall.  Nothing huge just a little scribble on the wall.

This sounds like something you should be talking to your therapist about, Subby.

This seems a lot more feasible in that house:

San Diego, CA, in the North end of the Kensington District is a house with a cave underneath, built circa 1925-1935. It overlooks Mission Valley.

That would be the biggest bestest root cellar ever! or a tornado/storm bunker. (Does Pennsylvania even get tornadoes?)

Myk-House of El: Stately Wayne Manor it is not.

There's a few houses here on a ridge overlooking the city. Very rich houses. Big English style 'manor houses' with lot of brick and nice driveways. Some have caves in the 'basement'. They were built in the 20's and 30's in Birmingham...No AC at the time. So the caves where ducted to feed cave chilled air to the house, and there was a big 'root cellar' for food storage. A cave under your house can be a useful thing. Especially if  you like cheese, booze and mushrooms.

the cave was discovered in the 1830s on the land of John Coffey

Like the drink but spelled different.
