Stone

Inspired by Frank at Dutch Goes the Photo: Stone

 

An 1846 “Settlers’ House and Barn” is the site for this magnificent stone chimney.

The house – located on the grounds of the Shelburne Museum in Vermont – is “constructed of hand-hewn beech and pine timbers.”

An example of lasting craftsmanship…and the durability of stone.

Nearby…more stones…in a wall behind a flower garden. A mysterious massive stone with a hole in the middle was propped against it. I imagine it was designed for a purpose, but I could not find out what that purpose may have been. It was one of several on display.

Ideas anyone?

An interesting sight, nonetheless…

  1. Lovely photos, the cabin looks fabulous with it’s stone chimney and wood. The hole in the rock? It has to be for a specific need I guess? Looks as though it were cut with a modern cutting bit.
