This summer I have spent more time driving on the Point Road, having bought a home in the Buena Vista Mobile Home Park in Willsboro, NY. So in addition to visiting our family home out there, I now live just past the family home.
One building I have looked at for years is the old, former Smith House. It has such character and I have wished for years that it would get fixed up and that it would once again feel the joy of having a family live in it.
Anyway, one day I noticed a small structure in the field just behind it, just past a few trees. Probably it has been there for a while, but it is difficult to see it against the vegetation all around there. This time, in a higher vehicle, I saw it against the sky. I stopped in the driveway and made my way through the vegetation to this object. Later on I brought my cousin, Xandra Pool, to check it out. Eventually we thought it used to carry a wind sock. Its location was not good for a plane runway, and we do not remember seeing a runway around there in the past years.
So, what is it? Why is it where it is? Another query for the readers of Essex on Lake Champlain.
Take a look at the photos above and try to identify this mystery object!
