Mary Campbell Cave is located in
Cuyahoga Falls within the
boundaries of the Gorge Metropolitan Park. The 'cave' is actually a rock shelter and was created during the last
12,000 years when the Cuyahoga River was
forced to carve a new path toward Lake Erie because it was blocked
by glacial debris. For many years it was known as Old Maid's
Kitchen, until the Daughters of the American Revolution renamed it
Mary Campbell Cave.
