History of African American Cave Guides at Mammoth Cave

Warren County Public Library invites you to a presentation with a ranger to explore the rich history of African American cave guides at Mammoth Cave National Park. In the cave, some of the early guides were young enslaved men such as Stephen Bishop, Mat Bransford, Nick Bransford, and Alfred Croghan. These men, along with many others, discovered and helped develop cave tour routes that enhanced the visitor experience throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries.
