<quoted text>I've also heard stories of there being an underground tunnel in the home Dr Reed owns on State st. Never knew if it was true, but my father and others say that about four miles out of Lowville on RT 26 the hollow was called "n****r hollow because the slaves would come through there and at night you could hear them moaning and hollering in pain. I have no facts to base this on, just what people around there have said. And please don't get offended by what I am referring too. I am not prejudice in any way. I hope someone can get more information on this. It would be interesting.
That's true about n****r hollow. It's just south of the Arthur Rd. on rte. 26. My dad has some old topo maps of the area, and the creek running through that cut is " N****r Creek on the map.
My grandmother, who passed away in the mid '80's, said there was a tunnel on the west side of rte. 26 from n****r hollow to the next cut north. About 500 yards. She said that a tractor caved that tunnel in, in the '50's.
PS not being predudice at all. It's just what we called the hollow.

Houghs cave has been found and explored this summer, the Martinsburg Historical society was on site at the time. The land is owned by the Jantzis. I do not for see it really being open to the public as it is 500' of army crawling with just your head above water and it is very cold water(in August). The cave however is very wide (10'-15'). Due to the landowners filling the sinkholes in with rocks and dirt and the farming over the last 150 years the cave has silted in, I believe the accounts of a boat being inside could defiantly be true. It is quite a nasty smelling cave as well, due to the fertilizing of the corn field above. Do not attempt to locate the entrance unless you obtain permission from the landowner. A wetsuit is required as well!.
