HUNTSVILLE, AL. - Before renowned scientist Wernher von Braun brought the rocket-research era to Huntsville, it was known as “Cave City.”
An estimated 240 caves are known, named and catalogued by the Alabama Cave Survey within the city limits and Redstone Arsenal, according to the 2005 publication “Tales of Huntsville Caves.” Between Madison and Jackson counties, there are more than 2,000 mapped caves.
