Jimmy Dunn speaks at Dunbar Cave

A postcard like photograph of the pool at Dunbar CaveSince September 8, 1936, when Papa Dunn ran up the path to Dunbar Cave yelling, “It’s a boy, it’s a boy!”, Jimmy Dunn’s history coincides with that of Dunbar Cave’s.  As a youth, Jimmy’s first job was to operate the popcorn machine by the cave entrance.  Later he operated a concession stand by the pool. 

Tonight he is giving a presentation, “Memories of Dunbar Cave”.  He has pictures and stories to share.  This presentation is free and open to the public.  It starts at 7:00 p.m. at the Dunbar Cave Visitor Center.
