Hummelstown in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Indian Echo Cave, formerly known as Echo Cave, is one of the foremost natural attractions in the northeastern U.S. and is comparable to the Luray Caverns of Virginia, noted for the type and beauty of its formations. It is considered to have nearly as much influence in putting Hummelstown on the map, as did the Hummelstown Brownstone Company. In 1929 John Bieber opened the cave for visitors and installed a lighting system. One year later, a second chamber was discovered and opened to the public. The Swartz family purchased the cave property in 1940, and it remains open to visitors.
