Numerous caves in the Ozarks have been used for storing
apples and other fruits and vegetables, but so far as we
know, there us only one called Apple Cave. It is located
near the village of Aurora in Madison County, Arkansas.
Apple, men and bears played a part in the history of this
cave. It was here that Gerstaecker, the German traveler and
writer, and members of the Konwells family killed a bear and
her cubs, dragged them out of the cave and rolled them over
a cliff to their camp below. M.E. Oliver of Huntsville,
Arkansas put this scene on canvas in 1955.
