Council Grove Post Office - Beer/Wine Cellar

Council Grove Township

Morris County

This large arched cellar is located just to the east of the historic post office in Council Grove. It is built well underground and is accessed via an arched covered stairwell. The cave itself opens to the east but the stairwell comes out to the south. It is supposed to have been used to brew beer during the early days of Council Groves founding. In more recent years it has even been used as a place where socials and dances were held. The cave is approximately 24’(L)x16’(W)x 9’(H).
