Take Shelter

Snell, John - Root Cellar

Jefferson Township

Geary County

This arched cave was apparently built into the back of a stone house. The cave is built into an embankment without much of mound raised above it. It’s made with good sized cut and jointed stone although the back wall is very irregular. It walks out to the south into the remnants of the house and measures 8’(L)x5.5’(W)x 7’(H).
