Take Shelter

Erikson, J.A. - Root Cellar

Blue Valley Township

Pottawatomie County

Apparent external arched cellar located in an isolated area several miles south of Oldsburg. The cellar walls have completely collapsed although it's not clear whether this happened intentionally or due to natural forces. The abundance of stone suggest the fact it once had an arched roof. It is located to the north of a small stone house that still has a couple standing walls. The cave faces east and approximately measures 16'(L)x8'(W)x?'(H).
