Take Shelter

Ziegler, Chris - Root Cellar

Louisville Township

Pottawatomie County

This arched cellar is built to the east of abandoned wood frame house, partially beneath ground under a raised hump. It seems to be entirely constructed of injected concrete. Shown as part of this gallery to illustrate the differences between a concrete cave and one of stone. Also, it shows how a cellar might have been set up with often makeshift shelves and bins. The cellar opens to the south and measures 16'(L)9'(W)x7'(H).
