Lincoln Caverns was discovered in May of 1930 during the construction of U.S. Route 22. Thirteen months later, on June 25, 1931, it was opened to the public as ‘Hi-Way-May Caverns.’ The family who farmed the land on which the cavern was discovered, were the original developers. By the end of the first season of business the caverns were up for sale.

Since then, the commercial entrance has moved. Buildings, pavilion, walking trails have been added.
