Congratulations Clarence. Can you tell us a bit about this old
cellar?

My picture was taken when we visited Pebble Beach in California,
I think.
We drove through some really nice places. I managed to get
a picture of this entrance gate.

I really don't have any stoty about this old cellar, but it seems it would have it's own story to tell. I took this picture some years ago on an adbandened farmstead in Tripp County, South Dakota. I had no idea of who may haved lived there or when. To me the cellar told something of the people who may have lived there. I have no idea whether it was built for a root and vegitable cellar or a storm cellar, maybe both.

I have read several testononies for final proof of homesteads, many of them mention a cellar as one of the improvements they had placed on the land. This to me represents independance and a will to be self-sustaining and to be prepared for the un-expected.

When I took this picture I was on my way from Pierre, SD to Winner, SD. I stopped at this old farmstead thinking I might get some interesting pictures. There was an old house, sort of small and low. It had a wide dormer built on the south roof. It looked like it made have been an add on at one time. There was a delapitated barn, and a short concrete walk up to the house, along this walk there were iris still alive, that may have been planted years before The picture of the cellar was an after-thought.

Thanks for the story, Clarence. You made it interesting.
