Discover the Marble Halls of Oregon

Nestled deep inside the Siskiyou Mountains, the caves formed as rainwater from the ancient forest above dissolved the surrounding marble and created one of the world's few marble caves. The highly complex geology found on the Monument contributes to the unusual and rare plants and animals found nowhere else but here. Experience the extensively decorated and adventurous "Marble Halls of Oregon."

Debugged-DYK

Computer bugs, slang for something gone wrong in a program, are actually named for a real insect. In 1947, technicians working for computer scientist Grace Hopper found a moth inside her computer. The trapped moth was making the machine malfunction. Once removed, they reported that the computer was “debugged”. They taped it onto her notes with a little joke that is now part of our everyday language.
