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.
An interesting sight, nonetheless…
