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!
