Cave City

Cave City was until 1994 the largest city in Sharp county.
The city was established under the name of Loyal in 1880. the name was changed in 1890 to Cave City because the only way to access to Crystal River was thru a cave located close to the center of the town. Crystal River is rather dead of life, other than a species of eyeless fish, and the river seems to have no flow.
Cave City is famous for its watermelons that they claim to be the sweetest in the world. The watermelons are celebrated every August with a watermelon festival.
Cave city has a population of about 2000.
