Russell Cave National Monument was established on May 11, 1961 when 310 acres donated by the National Geographic Society to the Amercian people were set aside to protect the seven-mile cave and the archeological artifacts found in and around the cave.
Russell Cave offers one of the longest and most complete archeological records in the eastern United States. The srtifacts here indicate intermittent human habitation for almost 9,000 years. Using carbon-14 dating techniques, researchers have dated to within 300 years the charcoal remains from fires uncovered at various depths.
Russell Cave National Monument interprets Native American culture from the Paleo period to the Mississippian era.
