|Crystal Grottoes Caverns 19821 Shepherdstown Pike, Boonsboro, MD 240-217-7623 Approximately 10 miles awayInstead of the rock washing away from moving water the Crystal Grottoes Caverns were formed by groundwater that dissolved through the limestone at a rate of 10 feet per year. Also known as solution caves because of this formation process the Crystal Grottoes Caverns are the only commercialized caverns on the east coast to have formed in a syncline through this process. One can only imagine that the workers that discovered the caves in 1920 had no idea that they were discovering such a large and unique solution cave with hundreds of thousands of beautiful formations that took thousands of years to be created.|
