JD wrote:The local press asked me about the history of the site a couple of years ago. At the time the cave was open and part of a city park. Still is, I think. The cave was a speakeasy/nightclub as liquor and dancing literally went underground in Tenn. during Prohibition, which in Tenn. began in 1910 and continued to 1933, when it went back to local option.
You should be able to find the article on its history in the Daily News-Journal.
The wall you describe is the formerly blocked back entrance, which is on the golf course.
The cave has other cultural features too, but the remains of the nightclub are perhaps the most interesting bit of recent history there.
