Take Shelter

Spillman, William - Root Cellar

Bala Township

Riley County

Arched cellar built into embankment located besides a wood frame out building behind abandoned two story wood frame house very near Clay/Riley county border. There are also several other outbuildings on property as well as mixed wood/stone barn across street. It shows signs of someone occupying it. This is apparent by stone fire circle and driftwood bench that have been dragged into space. Likely this would have been a more recent squatter and not something that the homesteader would have done. The cave steps up (a few steps) to the west 20'(L)x10'(W)x7.5'(H).
