Take Shelter

Phillips, R.C. - Root Cellar

Wildcat Township

Riley County

This arched cave is built under a pronounced raised mound to northeast of a wood frame house. A large barn and several other out buildings are also nearby. The cave itself shows signs of recent use and refitting with modern materials but the cave itself is clearly quite old. There is the remnants of a stone house about 40 yards to the northwest of the cave. It faces south and measures 14'(L)x8'(W)7'(H).
