I find it so strange that fireplaces always manage to stand against the test of time. Here is a collection of 12 fireplaces that hold their own against the ravages of mother nature.
1. Snowy Moor
The old house is gone, but the fireplace remains. This photo was taken on an evening walk in the town of Garðabær. This is a HDR image from 3 exposures.
2. Bar Room Fireplace
Now it looks like that mother nature has set up shop in this local bar.
The same fireplace in happier times:
3. Weird Fireplace
This fireplace still looks brand-new! I started to imagine what used to be here, a house? a cabin? Now we will never know but at least the fireplace still stands.
4. A Hidden Secret..
I like this image as it looks like the old house owners have tried to hid away their fireplace. I imagine some hidden secret hides behind the plasterboard…
5. Broken Fireplace?
6. Church Fireplace
This magnificent fireplace was photographed in City Methodist Church, Gary Indiana. It was was built in 1925 and closed in 1975
current status: abandoned, no plans for renovation (at current time)
7. Fireplace Against Blue Sky
You always see Chimney's standing with no trace of a house, it makes me think that houses should be made entirely of chimneys....
8. Dirty Fireplace
This Fireplace was inside the first of 3 abandoned houses on the Lewis property in Hawthorne, Florida.
9. Rock Tavern Fireplace
A close up of the abandoned fireplaces in the Rock Tavern ruin.
10. Fireplace on the Second Floor
Fireplace in Pawlings Farm Mansion House at Valley Forge Park, PA. I doubt this second floor fireplace will be able to last another major storm.
11. Last Man Standing
12. Lonely Abandoned Fireplace
This fireplace was constructed in 1937 in Beloit, WI at Big Hill Park. It seems more like an old grave than a friendly fireplace.
