Robber’s Cave, in southwest Lincoln near the intersection of 10th and High streets, was called Pahuk Bluff by the Pawnee Indians who came here to contact Tirawa, the god of all things. The cave was later a stop on the Underground Railroad and, in 1876, a hideout for Jesse James. Later, because of its proximity to the state penitentiary and a mental institution, reports tell of many convicts and patients who ended up here through tunnels from their respective buildings. Some died in the tunnels, and all of these stories lead to the rumors that the cave is haunted. Witnesses say you can here Native American chants and drums as well as screams, cries, laughter and voices. The cave has now been sealed, and a Subway restaurant is reported to sit atop the original entrance.
