1. Smokehouse Marker
Inscription. A Smokehouse is a structure used to cure meat and fish. It is typically a small building with no windows where meat is smoked and stored. A slow burning fire dries the meat over a period that can range from a few hours to a few weeks. Smoking was most often used in conjunction with salt-curing to preserve meat and fish. This smokehouse was built in the mid-1800's.
