There are also said to be plenty of small caves on private property in Southwest Nebraska. These caves were used as temporary shelters by ancient Native Americans and as hideouts by bootleggers during Prohibition. The caves aren’t open for exploration, but it’s kind of fun to know they’re out there. Let us know, Nebraska explorers: are there any other caves out there?
