Take Shelter

Johnson, Hannah M. - Root Cellar

Newbury Township

Wabaunsee County

This arched cave is built into an embankment with a slight mound raised above it. The cave is the only remnant of whatever original buildings that would have stood on this property. It has since lost its front entrance and part of its roof. The cave opens to the west and is quite large, measuring approximately 18’(L)x12’ (W)x 8.5’(H).
