Take Shelter

O'Neill, W.D. - Root Cellar

Jackson Township

Geary County

This arched cave is located in the middle of a section built high up on a hill looking south. It is an isolated structure and doesn’t appear to be near any other remnants of a home or outbuildings. The outer rock of the arch is quite exposed due to erosion. The homeowner remembers there being a house some distance to the south of it. It is laid up with very large cut and quarried stone with in impressive entry way retaining wall. It has a walk out entrance to the south via a single door (now gone). The cave measures 15’(L)x7.5’(W)x 7’(H).
