Take Shelter

Svacha, Louis - Root Cellar

Swede Creek Township

Riley County

This arched cave is built into a hillside embankment alongside a house adjoined by a retaining wall. It is a rather unique cave in its size and general shape. It's quite short and long and seems to have been a likely storm shelter. It also has a rather uneven arch which might suggest it was actually built over a dirt form. It faces east and measures 15'(L)x7'(W)4.5'(H).
