Take Shelter

Killins, E.H. - Root Cellar

Ashland Township

Riley County

This arched cave is built into a slight mound just to the west of modular home on McDowell Creek Rd. Although a number of apparently original structures still stand on the property, the original house no longer stands and it’s unclear just where it might have been located. The cave is made of very large cut and jointed stones and features a very robust stone structure over the stairwell. This cave steps up and out to the south. It is approximately 14’(L)x6’(W)x ?’(H).
