Take Shelter

Eurgett, Chas - Root Cellar

Mill Creek Township

Wabaunsee County

This arched cave is built into an embankment and is under a wood frame building that’s purpose is unclear. The sight is now empty and connected to just next to a large hay shed or. It seems as though the structure would have once been next to other buildings which are now gone and for some reason it was preserved. There is a possibility that the structure was a house but it is configured like other smokehouses that have been explored. The cellar faces walks out to the west and measuers 16’(L)x10’(W)x 6’(H).
