Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
Nestled in Jasper, Indiana, on Bartley Street between 9th and 13th streets is an impressively beautiful labor of love that took a little over a decade to create. Despite having been inspired by the famous Grotto of Lourdes in France, where numerous miracles are said to have occurred, as one builder put it: “There were no blueprints, just inspiration.” It shows. The stunning Providence Home Geode Grotto, as it’s come to be known, is to this day an amazing testament to the human spirit. This hidden grotto in Indiana must be seen to be believed, and once you’ve experienced it, you’ll no doubt want to return. Check it out:
Though the Providence Home is technically no longer a thing, the grotto still stands. It’s located on the grounds of the Cathedral Healthcare Center, a skilled nursing facility. You’ll find it on Bartley Street, between 9th and 13th streets, as we mentioned before.
