Take Shelter

Anderson, James - Root Cellar

Bala Township

Riley County

This arched cellar is located to north of wood frame house to the northeast of Leonardville. Its built under a very raised mound and is in danger of collapsing. The homeowners used it primarily as a root cellar and even provided a diagram of how it was set up. It seems that it was not often used as a storm cellar. This cave walks up and out to the west and is approximately 16'(L)x7'(W)x6.5'(H).
