Grotto

A settlement built around a cement plant, this area was named by fanciful visitors, seeing for the first time the deep gorges and ravines of Grotto Mountain, which overhangs the town. Grotto was a railroad construction camp for a short time in the 1890s. Today Grotto is still a small residential community, and is known for its scenic mountain environment. No traces of the cement plant can be found.
