Take Shelter

Meyers, Henry S. - Root Cellar

Liberty Township

Geary County

This arched cave is built into flat ground with just a short raised mound above it about a mile or two north of Morris County. It’s currently behind a modular home and it’s not clear where the original house associated with it would have once stood. The cave is built with large cut and jointed stone. The walls of the stairwell that descends into the cave are close to falling in so entry was prohibitive. The cave opens to the southeast and is approximately 14’(L)x7.5’(W)x 7’(H).
