The Root Cellar Capital of the World





Yes, there is such a thing and I have been there! Elliston has 135 documented root cellars, some of which are almost 200 years old. In a region where growing anything was hard, root cellars allowed the precious crops to be stored through the long winters.

The two root cellars above are in Elliston, but my favorite is the one on the left, in Twillingate. It looks like a hobbit hole.
