Of course, you’ll find fun things to poke through: old books, teacups, art, and more but you’ll also see some things you haven’t seen before. Fort Half Moon Antiques is also big on the history of this Indiana town and the surrounding area.

This county, Orange County, is rich in history. You’ll find plenty of Indian artifacts here as well as this intriguing sign to the right! What do you make of that? Were there really Native Americans that were only three feet tall?

One of the owners of Fort Half Moon Antiques can tell you all about local history. He’s also an avid caver! He willingly explores Indiana caves–and beyond!

His favorite cave in the States is Marengo Cave. He says the formations are fantastic (and I have to agree). Since he’s traveled the world exploring caves, you can bet he knows! He also informed us as to the extensive cave located below the town of Paoli itself!
