DeSoto Caverns with Easter Light Show & Buffet Lunch
Friday, April 15, 2011
Cost: $30.00/person (includes your lunch) Leave Bus Barn at 9:30 a.m. (We will eat lunch before touring the caverns) and return approximately 4:30 PM
During our hour long guided tour through beautiful DeSoto Caverns, you will see thousands of cave formations, making it one of the most concentrated collections in America. Our tour will begin in a room that is twelve stories high and larger than a football field. The caverns stay a comfortable 60 degrees year round, but with the 100% humidity inside the caverns, the temperature feels closer to 70.
There is a ramp that is used to enter and exit the caverns, so it is wheelchair and stroller accessible. There are two areas during the tour that are not handicapped accessible, but the tour goes into those areas and comes back out into the main room after a few minutes. The pathways are covered with small gravel with handrails provided where necessary for safety.

Restored to its 1930s appearance, the courtroom is the model for Harper Lee’s fictional courtroom settings in To Kill a Mockingbird. It’s now one of the most recognized courtrooms in America because of the popular film version of the book. Although the movie was not filmed here, the set designer came to Monroeville to measure, photograph and draw the courtroom before recreating it on a Hollywood sound stage. Today, fans of the classic novel come to the courthouse from all over the world because it is the most tangible connection to the book’s fictional Maycomb. Visitors are free to move throughout the courtroom, including the balcony, witness chair, judge’s bench and tables used by the prosecutor and defense attorney. Throughout her childhood, Harper Lee often sat in the balcony as she watched her father practice law in this very room.
The museum houses three permanent exhibits: Old Courthouse: Heart of the Community, Truman Capote: A Childhood in Monroeville, and Harper Lee: In Her Own Words.
We are just a few weeks away from our first annual Women’s Conference. The title of this event is “Women of Grace: Living the Gospel as a Woman.” It will be held at the Auburn Conference Center from Friday evening, January 28th through Saturday afternoon January 29th. Tanya York will be our guest speaker, and I have no doubt that our Morningview Ladies will be incredibly blessed through her warm spirit and her ministry of the Word of God.
