St. Mary's Lintel

Gardens of the Flavel House, Astoria, Oregon May 22, 2010

There's a stone bench in the garden behind the Flavel House near the corner of 8th Street and Exchange.

Gardens of the Flavel House, Astoria, Oregon If you come close to it, you'll see that it says "St. Mary's Hospital, 1905." Apparently this was the lintel to the old hospital toward the other end of Exchange.

I have been in that garden so many times, but have never gone up close enough to see this, thank-you!

The bench is fascinating indeed, but it's the green, green grass that got my attention!

Looks like a beautiful home with beautiful gardens/grounds. I also like that bench! Although I bet it gets hot.

What an amazing use for an old lintel - a bench! I really really like this idea! Now it is useful, instead of being in a landfill somewhere!

And what beautiful flowers and gardens! I haven't been there in years, I'm really really hoping this summer ...

That's a GREAT way to recycle it. I can sense it coming up on that other blog soon enough!

Pretty cool bench, Sheryl. I'll bet it appears on another blog in the near future, also!
