    Kronkosky Tower

    Kronkosky Tower

    The Kronkosky Tower and grounds are home to the Benedictine Sisters' monastery and their ministries. Programs for senior citizens are offered there. The tower was built in 1911 on a hill overlooking Boerne. I am not sure whether the tower is ever open to the public now. If it were, it would have the best view of anywhere in the area.

    Entrances to Cave Without a Name

    by AlbuqRay Written Sep 18, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Original and New Entrances

    The original entrance was a 45 foot shaft in what looks like a well in the foreground. Remains of prehistoric animals have been found at the bottom of the shaft. A WPA project built the new entrance, which is a spiral staircase in the structure in the background. They also blasted a 14 foot long hole in a stone wall at the bottom, so you don't have to crawl on your stomach through the original small hole into the main room.

    Formations in Cave Without a Name

    The Most Famous Formation

    The younger formations tend to be white. Evidently after a rain, enough water pours down from a small hole in the ceiling to partially dissolve this white formation. The rest of the time, it slowly builds up.

    Stream in Cave Without a Name

    Clear Water Cave Stream

    This is the stream at one end of the cave. The cave extends much further but you must go under water to continue. After a rain, this stream can get quite large. The high water mark was 7-8 feet above this level. There is a rare salamander that lives in the stream but we did not see one.

    Spring-fed Pools

    There are spring-fed, crystal clear pools of water in the Cave Without a Name. At the far end, there is even a small stream flowing.
