bingo! bingo!a lesser common directional chimney ,some are bi ,tri and omni the last photo is omni,directional
I thought it was obviously a chimney. There is really not much more it could be unless it was something to do with circulating air from a toilet as it can rank, but there was still a window to open and a door to shut in that time, that's probably im guessing after when the toilet and houses were seperated even before septic tanks and there probably would have been a long drop dug seperate area from the house when someone needed to take a dump.

the house which I do ,somewhere have a photo of ,probably was built sans plumbing ,its a depression era home .1935 .the fireplace in the middle means it had an addition ,or its the kitchen .its not quite a derelict but neither is it occupied .its a shotgun house .if its a true no plumbing house it had an outhouse originally .there would be a underground septic for that left and if made to have plumbing or it added it would still be there .I nearly fell into a septic tank of a razed house months ago.empty and nithing there ,just noticed how the hole was shaped and the concrete wall was

that house is from 1915, it was a doctors' house if i remember , this is pre roof and siding restoration, i took this as i noticed they began to clear around and thought they might be reading to raze it. instead they redid the roof and the sliding, and i believe it has power to the main house there are two other guest houses that are hidden from the road and both of them did at one time have their own electric.
