Take Shelter

Zabokrtsky, Joseph - Root Cellar

Little Blue Township

Washington County

Arched cellar built into hillside about 1/2 of a mile to the east of Big Bear Rd. just to the north of a foundation of a house that once stood on the property. There are only a few other remains of other out buildings on the property. The cellar itself is quite large and made of a very red stone, possibly more of a sandstone than limestone. The front of the cave is falling away. The inside was once covered with plaster which is now almost entirely come off. The cave has a walk out entrance and opens to the southeast. It measures 18’(L)x10’(W)x8’(H).
