Fire Prevention

An outside chimney helped prevent the spread of fire to the interior of the building. A common practice to contain a chimney fire was to pull it down!

Good fence

Much is in need of repair or replacement here, or the usual paint, but the fence is solid and recent.

So remote

So remote that even Google Streetview didn't get there yet.

A perfect spot for the socially anxious and the enochlophobic.

Holy smokes

The stand-alone chimney reminds me of very early Colonial homes.

The Post Office in Paradise?

I am guessing that they mainly use text and email these days.
