Search for entrance to cave finds vaulted cellar, instead

2018-02-21 - Burkesville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener,

Was there an entrance to a Cave along the property line of the old S.F. Coffey residence and the Horace Cundiff residence, or not? Others may have thought this concrete entrance was the entrance to the cave. When the new owners, the Stotts family bought the property from Jack Newcomb, they explored the opening in the hillside, above. Turns out, this is a large cellar, apparently never a cave entrance. Perhaps someone has the answer. Has the cave entrance been filled in? Didn't the cave once furnish a heating/cooling system for the the house once occupied by the Cundiff, later Dr. Griffith's family, later the Wallace Richard Home? Junior and Connie Stotts and their son, Barry, and daughter, Melissa, would like to know. - EW
