Beehive Fireplace

Restored "Beehive"-shaped outdoor fireplace in a roadside park. Built in the 1930s by the Works Progress Administration, and restored in 2009. Unfortunately it is not available to use as a grill, as they were originally.

Looks like a fairy tale witch oven. Not a place you'd want to drop your cheeseburger.
