Take Shelter

Davis, F.I. - Root Cellar

Sherman Township

Pottawatomie County

This arched cellar is built into slightly raised mound to the east of abandoned wood frame house. Although these two structures are all that remain of homestead it seems likely the cave would have had some structure built above it. Although it's hard to say what the nature of the structure would have been. The cave was built with dry stacked rough hewn stone. The cave opens to the south and measures 15'(L)8'(W)x5.5'(H).
