Historical Cave Spring Creek, Louisburg KS on/under 303rd Street (38.576407, -94.613428)

Report of the Geological Survey of Miami County, Kansas

This limestone is well exposed in the eastern bluffs of the Marais des Cygnes, in the highest points north of the "Devil's Backbone," above Stanton. It also appears at Coldwater Grove, and in all the highest ridges between those points, and in numerous places in the north part of the County, as Cave Springs and Buzzard Roost.

The cave at Cave Spring, south of Spring Hill, and the Sink Holes near Wea Cave, and at Coldwater Grove and other places, descend into this rock, the upper portions of which are so soft and porous, that the water has worn out the holes and cavities so characteristic of this formation.
