Get in touch with your natural side and visit Echo Dell – Indian Echo Caverns, 15 minutes from our apartments in Harrisburg, PA. According to Echo Dell, the caverns were likely first visited by the Susquehannock Indians, who may have used the area as refuge from inclement weather. The Indian Echo Caverns were first opened to the public by John Bieber in 1929, when the caverns treacherous and uneven terrain was commercialized into safer pathways for daily visitors. While Bieber’s ownership of the caverns was surrendered to the bank at the height of the Great Depression, Hershey native, Edward S. Swartz, purchased the property and opened it back up to the general public in 1942. His family still owns the caverns today, providing hundreds of thousands of visitors the opportunity to walk the paths of the Susquehannocks each year.
