Kettle House

Kettle House in Galveston, Texas, made of steel in the 1950's.
It is a very interesting-looking structure.
According to the “Weird Texas” by Wesley Treat, Heather Shade and Rob Roggs, :"You probably wouldn't consider steel to ne the best uilding material for a salty environment, but the composition of the Mysterious kettle House on Galveston's shores is just one of its puzzling traits.
Consider, for example, that it's also the only structure in sight that isn't on stilts, another unusual design choice for a building so close to the water. Nevertheless, the Kettle has existed for some fifty years.
Supposedly it was erected by a gentelman who used to build storage tanks for oil companies, though his exact identity is unknown. The neighbors, some og whom were residents when the Kettle went uo, have seen the man but know little about him.
One local says the structure, which he refers to as the Tank, was originally built to serve as a convenience store, though it never opened. It just sits empty. On occasion, someoane will show up , do a little work, then disappear for years. There have been reports of strange figures arriving in the wee hours of the morning, then vanishin. No one would be seen again for months."
