Take Shelter

Hyde, John - Root Cellar

Liberty Township

Geary County

This arched cave is built underneath an outbuilding to the southwest of a striking and large two story wood frame house north of Alta Vista. The cave made of large cut and jointed stones and features an unusual set of recessed shelves on the back wall. The cave was flooded when visit was made and so full investigation was not possible. The cave opens up via a stairwell to the south and is approximately 14’(L)x8’(W)x 5.5’(H).
