08/06/08 120 W, 1 I - + 11 - 12 Civil War Cave off Airline Drive


Anyone know anything about a cave off Airline Drive that purportedly was used during the Civil War? It's relatively easy to find. Take Airline Drive to the end, turn right on Sandra Drive. Look for a creek on the right that passes behind houses. Walk the creek for some 200 yards. The cave is on the left. Crouch to enter, but you can stand once inside. It's maybe 20 feet deep. Though there's too much foilage to see the area using Google maps, Wake County's aerial photography has photos from the winter months. As for the Civil War stories, I've heard that ammunition was hidden there. Perhaps during Raleigh's occupation.
