We Got Chimney!

Michael Hoge and his craftsmen have basically finished restoring the interior chimney at the Duncan House. As you can see, "interior chimney" means that the chimney is inside the wall of the house and isn't visible from the exterior.

Twisted Chimney

Restoring The Historic Duncan House, (Circa 1858) Headquarters for Generals, 810 Polk, Corinth, MS.
You may recall that our 'commitment' on the Duncan House is to restore the outside as close as possible (and feasible) to how it looked in 1862. Our intent is to have the interior quite 'livable' but not historically's undergone way too many re-modelings in the last 160 years for that!

However, the house did had an interior fireplace (added well after 1862) that basically disintegrated as the move began. We are replacing that entire fireplace.
