Take Shelter

Borene, Chas - Root Cellar

Jackson Township

Riley County

This arched cave is built into an embankment of hillside to the west of and behind a two story stone house that covers the cellar from view almost completely. They are tied together via a short covered walkway. The cave walks straight out into the house. It also sports a pretty large window at the back as well as one over the entrance. The property also has an old mixed wood and stone barn as well as an apparent quarry. This quarry is located about 40 yards north of home. It measures 16'(L)x9'(W)x7.5'(H).
