Meramec Caverns
Stanton

The most famous roadside attraction in Missouri was discovered in 1720. "Salt Petre Cave" provided an important ingredient for gun-powder. Legend says Jesse James hid out here while riding with Quantrill's Guerillas during the Civil War. Locals staged dances in a subterranean ballroom. Lester Dill bought the cave on May 1, 1933.
