Take Shelter

Peterson, R. - Root Cellar

Liberty Township

Geary County

This arched cave is built into an embankment about 15 yards to the northeast of an abandoned 2 story wood frame house. There is also a stone outbuilding on the property just to the southeast of the cave. The cave itself is made of somewhat rough, but clearly quarried stone that was likely jointed but might also have been dry stacked and later had the joints filled. The cave walks out to the north away from the house via a single door and measures 16’(L)x8’(W)x 6.5’(H).
