There’s No House In The World Like This One In Missouri
What would you do with a 17,000-square-foot cave if it belonged to you? Would it occur to you to convert it into a home and live in it? I think for most people it wouldn’t, but for the Sleeper family, it most certainly did. And they found it on EBAY!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The website, http://www.caveland.us, is currently run by the Sleeper family and they still live in the home. It is located at 1101 North 11th Street in Festus.
Have you heard of this home before? Have you seen it? What do you think of the concept of living in a cave? Share in the comments below.
