Old Homestead Chimney

About Pgibson

I'm from Huntsville, Alabama where I work as a Software Engineer and part-time banjo instructor. My wife Miiko and I worship at Rivertree Downtown. I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin and dulcimer at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play and teach Scruggs, melodic, clawhammer, and 2-finger styles. I'm also very keen on theology, being a Trail Care Partner with the Land Trust of North Alabama, photography, urban planning, architecture, astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, martial arts, and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.

    That is a huge stone above the fireplace opening! Makes one wonder about the history… The only brick seen lines the fireplace, stones for the chimney or is the chimney brick lined? Anyway, neat image Phill.

    Thanks! I didn’t get close enough to see many details as it looks to be private property. Yes, a huge stone there! I like to imagine what sort of stove connected into the circular opening. What years was it used? Interesting…
