Thank you very much. I am not too sure what this was used for. There are chimneys above each opening, so I assume pioneers probably built it to fire brick. But I really do not know. I have been trying to get a hold of one of my past architecture professors for his input.

I've heard that it was a crematorium.

Could be St Thomas. I wasn't real sure what to label this, but knew it used to be something to burn "stuff".

I have just re-visited this place and there has been a sign put up since saying these were lime kilns (not a crematorium).

How do you get to this place?

There's a trail from the southwest that runs between a driveway and another house's yard. It's been a couple of years since I've been here though.
