Take Shelter

Stewart, O.M. - Root Cellar

Bala Township

Riley County

This arched cellar is built underground beneath raised mound and opens out to the west. There are a few out buildings to the west of it but no clear signs of where a house would have once stood. Clearly it was near a house based on the water treatment tanks that are still located inside. There is a large window/vent in the back with a bug screen over it. Seems very large for just ventilation. The cave measures 14'(L)x8'(W)x7'(H).
