Office and guest house, the big house, facing east toward the Phoenix across Monkey Branch. The gentleman standing on the steps is probably Mr. Charles Augustus Chapin (Chicago, Illinois), the president of The Miami Mining Company. If so this places the date of the photo prior to 1913 as that was the year of Mr. Chapin's death (1) . The fireplace at the end of a very large room (dance hall ?) burned cord wood (4 feet).
