Does anyone know what the hell this is?


Recommended Posts

The house was about sixty years old. There were clay tiles--now separated--that ran from the front foundation wall to this pit in the crawlspace. The pit was about four-feet deep, approximately ten-feet by ten-feet in size, and it had concrete-block walls.

My first thought was that it had to be a cistern, but clearly not much water could be collected, so probably not. Any clues?
