This Nova Scotia Building Is Apparently The Only One In The World To Have A Window In Its Chimney

If you’re touring around Pictou, Nova Scotia there is a sight to be seen that is giving the Ship Hector a run for its money as the most talked about attraction in town.

According to the Town of Pictou, it’s home to the only building in the world that has a window in its chimney.

The so-called unique building is the town’s old post office. It was built in 1895 to accommodate the increased mail volume coming through Pictou bound for Prince Edward Island and Quebec.

Does Pictou’s claim-to-fame stand the test of Google? We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but no Pictou’s claim is busted.

There are other chimneys constructed with windows in them. In fact, Alexander Graham Bell’s estate in Baddeck, Cape Breton has an entire set of doors with windows constructed in its chimney.

The old post office is located at 20 Water Street in Downtown Pictou. Although it may not be totally unique, it’s still an interesting sight to see.
