Colossal Cave is one of the largest dry caves in north America, formed from limestone and granite. The earliest inhabitants the Hohokam, used the Cave as temporary shelter as early as 900AD. In 1879 a rancher rediscovered the Cave and it was once used by train robbers as a hideout after pulling a job. In 1905 a tunnel was excavated to mine for bat guano a valuable commodity in fertilizer. During the The Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) did early development of the Park, included the building of the Cave Shop and park roads along with lighting and walkways in the Cave. Today Colossal Cave Mountain Park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
