Cave-In-Rock is on the Ohio River Scenic Byway and on the day tours The Irish Inn designs for visitors from all over the world.  Said to have been a hideout for pirates, the scene of a variety of intrigues during the Civil War, boats were once built there and concerts by now legendary musicians held.  Cave-In-Rock was one of the sites for the movie "How The West Was Won," which starred James Stewart, Debbie Reynolds, John Wayne and other Hollywood notables.  The cave is located on the Illinois side of the Ohio River.  This photo was taken from inside the cave looking across to Kentucky by Jeanette Cooperman, and the image from the movie is now in the public domain.
