Take Shelter

Bangert, Mary - Root Cellar

Pottawatomie Township

Pottawatomie County

This native stone arched cellar is built into a slight slope to the south of an abandoned wood frame house. The cave is still very intact but entry was avoided due to the collapsing lintel stone over entrance and large amount of jars and bottles strewn around space. The intact shelves clearly show the way the space was set up and used. The cellar opens to the east and measures 15'(L)9'(W)x6.5'(H).
