Well, i don't have any photos, but the root cellar is under a portion of my living room on the north side of the house. The 2x3 opening is just a wooden door adjoining the underpinning of the foundation with a 8 foot drop if you go in. There is no basement. At one time, i am sure there was a door to the root cellar that was filled in when the underpinning was done or perhaps before, who knows? There are no traces of a stairwell. It is an antebellum house and i have very little history on it. It just makes sense that this area was probably used for a root cellar in the past. It has a compacted dirt floor with huge timbers lining it. Much to the chagrin of the plumbers i have had doing repairs, there is another "door" to access the underneath of the house in the far corner. Thanks for your thoughts.
