Historical marker found at the Grotto Caves in the Cascade Wilderness.


Discovered in 1907, the Grotto Caves were found to be the dumping grounds for local doctor and serial killer Joseph Walker. Located in Farewell, Walker made a living treating pioneers and settlers in the region, many of whom he murdered for reasons unknown.

Joseph Walker was believed to have killed over two dozen people, including one young child, before he disappeared in 1905, prior to the cave's discovery. Although there are many rumors, the fate of the infamous Farewell doctor is still uncertain.
