Grey Cloud Island ancient stone structure???

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone know what that ancient-looking crumbling stone tower thing with the multiple arched doors was? It looks like a peice of history but I can't tell what it was. It almost looks like the corner of a castle or some sort of armory. It must be 75'x75' and 100' tall. Its in the backyward of a red house.

I was half tempted to look up the phone number of the folks who own the property and ask them about it. I am intrigued by old structures like this.

Thanks for the feedback - I always suspected it was a kiln of some kind but had no real clue. Mystery solved.

There used to be signs there telling you what it is. Have they been removed?

I think so - I was there last weekend (first time) and I saw the stack but no signs. Granted I wasn't looking too hard and the weeds are getting tall, so maybe it was covered? It's in someone's backyard now.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
