Take Shelter

Brasche, August - Root Cellar

Washington Township

Wabaunsee County

This arched cave is built into an embankment with a slight mound rising above it and is located about 20 yards to the southeast of a large 2 story stone house. The cave is interesting in that its back wall faces out into a small ravine and includes a large window. The entrance is on the western wall and steps up several stairs to ground level. The cave and the rest of the buildings on the property were only recently restored (2012-2013) by the Koch Mason company out of Cottonwood Falls. The cave measures 16’(L)x11’ (W)x 7’(H).
