Take Shelter

Swenson, S.J. - Root Cellar

Blakely Township

Geary County

The arched cave is located in the middle of a section about a ¼ mile east from Clarks Creek Rd. It’s near the bank of the creek in a thick patch of forest and doesn’t seem to be near any other obvious structures or even foundations. It really seems to be an isolated cave. The cave would have apparently been a walk out structure but now its front is nearly completely missing and the arch is in the middle of collapsing. It was too treacherous to enter so measurement was not possible. It opens to the east and is approximately 14’(L)x7’(W)x ?’(H).
