Arched roof cellars, unique to the Flint Hills, have piqued an interest that continues to be strong.
Box lunches available prior to tour, by reservation
Stone Arched Cellar Tours were first offered by The Volland Store in the Spring of 2016 as a response to the Store’s art exhibit “The Spirit of Place: Rooted in the Flint Hills.” by Tom Parish. Tours of arched cellars in Wabaunsee County in the Spring of 2016 quickly sold out, and additional tours were added in the Fall of 2016 and the Spring of 2017.
We are fortunate to have Rob Meseke as our guide. His knowledge of local history has been passed down from previous generations of his family, and an intimate knowledge of the surrounding landscape enables him to select additional stops that will enrich your experience. The Fall tours will explore locations around Volland and Alma, and all tours will begin and end at The Volland Store.
As a convenience for tour participants, box lunches will be available prior to the tour, by reservation. Seating in the blacksmith shop – or in lovely autumn weather, on picnic tables outside.
Tours start at 1:00pm – Participants will be bussed to the tour stops. The tour will last around four hours, and we will have you back to your vehicle by approximately 5 pm.
Wear good walking shoes and be prepared for uneven ground. Dress appropriately for the weather. Please watch our Facebook page or thevollandstore.com for weather cancellations and updates.
We look forward to seeing you!
