Southern Indiana's Lawrence County is known as Limestone Country. Indiana limestone was a preferred building material, showing up in famous buildings such as the Pentagon, Empire State Building and Lincoln Memorial. Common in classic architecture, limestone bedrock is also associated with some of the largest caves in the world. More than 130 commercial caves are open to the public in the United States, with hundreds more found throughout the states in national and state parks.
