Take Shelter

Wertzberger, William - Root Cellar

Washington Township

Wabaunsee County

This arched cave is built under a two story stone house located a few miles west of Alma, Ks. It is accessed by a trap door and through a small outer chamber and side entrance into the arch of the cave. It is in very good condition just showing the normal wear for its age. It has a good coating of lime plaster over most of the arch that has likely been there for quite some time. The cave is approximately 16’(L)x9’(W)x 7’(H).
