Bolt, Fred - Root Cellar

Bala Township

Riley County

This arched cave is built into relatively flat ground and is was mostly completely underground. It's unclear where the house would have been in relation to the cellar but it seems likely it would have been in clearing to the north of structure. Now it's either succumbed to time, been demolished or moved. The cave has recently been cannibalized in order to create paving stones. Likely the entire back half of the cave is now missing. The cave seems to be a walk out but it's too lower ground. than what's behind it. Could this have been built off of a basement of house? It opens to the east and measures 214”(L)x80”(W)x65”(H).
