Seneca Caverns is a karst show cave in Germany Valley near Riverton, West Virginia, USA. It was used for ceremonies of Seneca Indians[dubious ], an Iroquois confederacy tribe and has been commercially used since 1930. The largest room inside the cave is the Teter Hall, which is 60 feet tall by 60 feet wide in some areas.
A German-American settler named Laven Teter discovered Seneca Caverns in 1742 on a quest for water to supply his livestock. The Teter family maintained ownership until 1928. In 1930 the new owners opened it to the public as a show cave.
