Take Shelter

Hanson, Erik - Root Cellar

Blue Valley Township

Pottawatomie County

External arched cellar located in a wooded area in middle of open pasture. The cellar walls have been completely coated with cement and at first glance the structure doesn't seem to be of native stone. Only a small area near entrance gives it away. The cement was likely added a long while after it's original construction. It is located near a few other stone foundations, one of which was a small house (only the chimney stands). The cave faces north and measures 14'(L)x8'(W)x7'(H).
