Smallin Civil War Cave Lantern Tours

Recurring daily until Nov 3.


The Civil War Lantern Tour includes a traditional "on the trail" dinner of ham and beans, cornbread, and fried potatoes. Dinner is served around a campfire in the woods, lit by lantern-light, and served by friendly "Union and Confederate" folks! The campfire dinner is the setting for stories and historical accounts of the Civil War-era locally and throughout the state of Missouri.

After dinner, the guests will enjoy a mysterious and beautiful lantern-lit tour through Smallin Civil War Cave. But guests beware...sometimes those darned Baldknobbers make an appearance!

The total tour length is approximately 3 hours. The Civil War Lantern tours are held each year on Saturday evenings in the Fall, from 6:30 p.m. to approximately 9:30 p.m. Space on the tours are limited, so guests must schedule their tours and place a deposit in advance. Call the Smallin Civil War Cave visitor's center for prices and availability!

A thorough effort has been made by the Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau (SCVB) to provide complete and accurate event listings. This information has been gathered from reliable sources, but it is still possible that all information may not be accurate. In addition, events are occasionally canceled, rescheduled, or postponed for a variety of reasons, and the SCVB is not always aware of these changes. As a result, the SCVB is not responsible for the accuracy of event information. It is recommended that participants verify information with the event organizer prior to attending or purchasing event tickets.
