William Brown House - Chimneys

An notable architectural feature of the William Brown House are the two central chimneys.

As you might expect, the chimneys get battered a lot by the weather and needed a lot of attention for this preservation project. The Worcester Eisenbrandt (WEI) crew is spending a lot of time repointing the brickwork and just checking the "health" of the chimneys.

Below are some pictures of their work and the chimneys.

The image below gives us a view of how the chimneys are capped. Before this project we at London Town had no images, and thus no good idea, of how the chimneys were capped. You should see three pieces of grey slate on each chimney. They are bolted in place to prevent rain, snow, and other debris falling into the chimneys.
