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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The website,, 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.
