Lester Dill, owner of Meramec Caverns in Stanton, puts his arm around his aunt, Elaine Dill Davis, as he gives her a kiss Saturday during a presentation marking the 80th anniversary of the attraction. Davis is the daughter of Meramec Caverns founders Lester and Mary Dill, who opened the cave along the Meramec River for public viewing in 1933. In the main building lobby, Davis unveiled a plaque mounted in her parents’ honor on Franklin County Day as she and her nephew marked the occasion.
