On This Day
Two homesteaders wandered west of Custer in the Black Hills in 1900 and felt cold air blowing out of a small hole in a canyon. Curious, they widened the hole with dynamite and found a cave filled with calcite crystals. Eight years later, on this day in 1908, President Theodore Roosevelt proclaimed Jewel Cave, named for the crystals the homesteaders first beheld, a national monument. Only a half-mile of tunnels had been discovered until 1959, when new exploration uncovered 15 miles of unmapped cave. Fire destroyed much of the surrounding area in 2000, but the visitor center and historic buildings were saved. Jewel Cave is now the second-longest cave in the country, behind Mammoth Cave in Kentucky.
