      Discovered by a hiker in Pennsylvania. Who built it? When? Look at the masonry! Done back when they built them to last... longer than the wood house that was around it!

      Fireplaces discovered while hiking in the woods along Devil's Hole Creek, Monroe County, within State Game Land 221. The ruins are of a hunting lodge built early in the last century, according to my hiking guidebook. Supposedly the lodge became a speakeasy during Prohibition.
