Take Shelter

Knedlik, Matej - Root Cellar

Little Blue Township

Washington County

Arched cellar built under slightly raised mound located next to remnants of small stone house northeast of Barnes, KS. It's front entrance is partially collapsed and the interior still has much of the boards and supports that would have once made up the shelves inside the cellar. There is very little else remaining of the homestead other than the house and cave. It is all surrounded by crop land. The cave opens to the west and measures 14’(L)x9’(W)x6.5’(H).
