Take Shelter

Rush, Thomas - Root Cellar

Farmer Township

Wabaunsee County

This arched cellar was built into a raised mound on hillside near the eastern edge of Mill Creek Township. It is now mostly crumbled and only has the front entrance and spring walls remaining. There are a few other structures left on the property including the square foundation walls of a barn and a silo. It’s not clear where the house would have once stood. The cellar opens to the west and is approximitaly 12’(L)x8’(W)x ?’(H).
