Take Shelter

Unknown - Root Cellar

Council Grove Township

Morris County

This apparent arched cave is located just below the Cliffside dwelling of Father Francisco the Hermit Monk in Council Grove, KS. It is built into the bottom of the hillside about 30 yards to the west of a very old wood frame house that still stands and is occupied. It’s likely the cave predates the house but this has not been verified. The cave does seem a long distance from house for use as a shelter or for a root cellar. Due to no one being home entry of cave wasn’t possible so size and nature of structures wasn’t able to be accounted for. The cave walks out the west via single door.
