March flowers in bloom at Mammoth Cave National Park

March flowers are blooming at Mammoth Cave National Park.

 

March flowers have always signaled warmer, sunshiny days at Mammoth Cave, even before it became a national park in 1941.

Cabins, stores, barns, and hotels once dotted the park’s 53,000 acres. ¬†Three churches, cemeteries, and the march flowers, or daffodils, stand in testimony to the families who gave up their land to create the 26th national park. ¬†Each spring the daffodils return like ghosts of the past, outlining the walkways and foundations that were removed in the 1930s.
