Take Shelter

Wright, John - Root Cellar

Sherman Township

Pottawatomie County

This arched cellar is built into slightly raised mound and is located in a small group of trees in the middle of a small field near a barn and a few outbuildings. It's not clear if any of these structures date to the period as the cellar. The cave was built with dry stacked rough hewn stone. The cave opens to the east and measures 14'(L)8'(W)x5.5'(H).
