Potato Cellar

-A A +A
1945, Louis G. Scatena

The long, narrow potato cellar, with its curved frame ceiling covered with metal, is clearly visible from the road. The subterranean structure has concrete retaining walls upon which the curved roof rests. Two wood doors open into the cellar's east end. Since the ranch no longer produces potatoes, the building is now used to store vehicles.
