Originally an outstation of the Levels sheep run, 29 km south-east of Fairlie, Cave became a small village with the arrival of the railway and the gradual subdivision of the Levels and other nearby sheep runs. Over the hill from the settlement is St David’s Memorial Church, built by the Burnett family.

Meaning of place name
There are several caves in the limestone formation. The Levels station was owned by the Rhodes family, who were in some way connected with Cave in Yorkshire, England. The district was originally known as The Cave, one particular cave in the vicinity being notable for Maori cave paintings.
