Public Welcome - More Information

Welcome to the internet home of the Great Saltpetre Preserve of Rockcastle County, Kentucky. The Great Saltpetre Preserve is the home of a historic limestone cave once mined for saltpeter. The cave is now normally closed to visitors, except for the annual Open House. The remainder of the grounds consist of a natural preserve consisting mostly of pasture and woodlands. The property is managed for historical purposes in an attempt to preserve a part of Kentucky's natural beauty for generations to come.
