A Museum Quality Country Decor print of a Chimney Standing Alone in Pasture Field. This museum quality landscape nature print shows a lone chimney or flue standing in a pasture field without a house. This flue has stood for probably well over 100 years without its home, in the middle of a field where cattle graze all summer long, so it was built with quality. The lintel rock has now broken, so the chimney probably won't be standing many more years as a landmark in the Reeds Creek area of West Virginia. Local legend has it that this was the house where a man lived in the 1840s who went quite crazy. One night while his family was sleeping he took an axe and completely chopped up his wife and 5 children, all who of course died. After the deed was done he cleaned up the axe and put it away, cleaned up himself and went down the road on his horse. He was apprehended a couple weeks later in Moorefield, WV, a town about 40 miles away, he was walking around the town and chatting to people like nothing had ever happened. How much of this is true is anyone's guess at this point in time, but that is the legend of this flue. It is a true fact about this man murdering his family and this is supposedly the house he had lived in at the time of the murders, but it isn't clear today how many children were involved.
