Oakland "Wigwam"

Oakland "Wigwam"

My name is Tyra and I took this picture in Oakland Oregon, of this Wigwam. I dont think it will be here much longer, so wanted to snap this shot before it falls down or gets torn down. I was told that they're pretty rare, and as old as it is' Its still beautiful!

Linda is right but only partly I think she has not lived in Oregon very long or she would know that it is a wigwam... these burners were all called wigwam burners but I guess only an old timer llike me would know that....

This is not a wigwam .. but an old burner from the lumber mill that was located there years ago. I agree, it is unique and rare to see one. Most were removed years ago thoughout state of Oregon. This is on private property and remains until it falls.
