Take Shelter

O'Neill, J.A. - Root Cellar

Jackson Township

Geary County

This arched cave is located to the south of Old K13 in a patch of forest near a creek. It’s built into flat ground with only a slight mound raised above it. There are a couple scattered wood frame structures nearby it, but where the house stood is not clear. The cave is not very big but it is made of very large cut and jointed stones. However, the front entrance is collapsing badly so the cave was not able to be entered. It cave entrance opens up and out to the east and the chamber is approximately 12’(L)x6’(W)x 5.5’(H).
