Tuckaleechee Caverns - Known as the "Greatest Site Under the Smokies," these caves have a long and colorful history. The caves are believed to be 20 and 30 million years old, carved out by the steady drip of water running underneath one of the planet's oldest mountain ranges, the Smoky Mountains. Legend says that the Cherokee Indians used the caves as hiding places. In the 1800s there were reports of a "cool spot" near a sink hole in the area -- local women would bring their sewing here in the summertime to cool off. Then, in the 1930s, the caves were briefly opened to the public, but were closed again during the Depression. In 1953 the cave was re-opened, and in 1954 the National Speleological Society discovered the "big room," a dramatic space that's 400 feet long and 300 feet across.
