My cellar walls are made of hand-cut fieldstone and are approximately 1.5 feet thick. In one corner of the cellar is a 4' by 4' cement block approximately 3' high (about 48 cubic feet). I am not sure if the block is solid cement.
Does anyone know why this was built or what its purpose was? I saw a simliar block in the corner of another house in this town, but the homeowners also have no information on it.
