The Caves were later a mushroom farm and then developed as a Restaurant Casino and Gangsters' Hotspot during the 1930s following prohibition. Newspapers reported an unsolved gangland murder at the casino. Tour guides point out the bullet holes. Some believe the caves are haunted by the murdered mobsters whose bodies were never found.
