Take Shelter

Condroy, Mary - Root Cellar

Grant Township

Riley County

This arched cellar is built into an embankment to the west of where a mixed wood and brick house would have once stood. The site is located to the north of where a road would have once cut through the area that is now no more than a grassy lane. The property has the remnants of several other structures that are all nearly gone. The structure has an interesting interior with a pronounced lip at top of its spring walls. This could have done intentionally in order to allow a support for shelves. This is one of the only ones found with this feature. It steps up a few steps to the east and measures 14'(L)x7'(W)x7.5'(H).
