Mary Campbell Cave

Mary Campbell Cave, also known as Old Maid's Kitchen, is a small secondary cliff cavity cave in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. The cliff and cave roof are sandstone of the Sharon Formation, while the cave wall is shale of the Meadville formation. The cavity in the cliff was formed when water passing through the porous sandstone eroded the shale, leaving a ground-level cavity beneath the cliff. The cave is currently part of the Gorge Park, administered by Summit County Metroparks, and is accessible by Gorge Trail. It is located on the north wall of the gorge overlooking the Cuyahoga River. GPS coordinates are N 41.124303° W 81.497349° WGS 84, Elevation of floor approximately 960 feet AMSL.

The cave is notable as the temporary home of Mary Campbell. A small plaque in the center of the cave gives visitors the story of her capture by native Americans. The approximately 40 meter wide cavity extends from a few to around fifteen meters into the cliff, and is tall enough to accommodate standing for much of the cavity's floor area. It affords good protection from precipitation in calm conditions, but the cavity would have had to be walled to provide protection from wind.

Famous quotes containing the words cave and/or campbell:

    What difference is there, do you think, between those in Plato’s cave who can only marvel at the shadows and images of various objects, provided they are content and don’t know what they miss, and the philosopher who has emerged from the cave and sees the real things?
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)

    The waters wild went o’er his child,
    And he was left lamenting.
    —Thomas Campbell (1774–1844)
