Root cellars
Description"Root cellar in Upper Island Cove built c. 1890 by Esau Adams. Esau and Naomi Adams built the cellar and original home in front of an existing cellar which has since be removed. It was originally a sod cellar with entrance at the back of the mound. The shed, or top house, and hatch entrance was added approximately 80-100 years ago (c.1920s). The cellar and property was taken over by Esau and Naomi's son William and his wife Elizabeth, followed by William's son Alfred and his wife Shirley. The property was sold to current owners David and Cindy Morrissey in 2007. The cellar was last used by Alfred and Shirley Adams to store vegetables grown in gardens adjacent to cellar until approximately 1990. The Morrisseys have plans start using the cellar again in the near future. "
