“The firepot was lined with asbestos and galvanized steel sheeting. The inside has a 3” by 2½" heavy gauge steel funnel to hold tobacco. A ¼" copper pipe had been installed during construction from the bottom of the funnel to the end of the pipe stem. A ¼" plastic tube was fitted to the end of the copper wire for anyone wishing to smoke or for air to be blown in to create smoke coming out of the pipe."

Plaque reads:
“The World’s Largest Smoking Pipe. Some of the first settlers arriving in this region in 1892 were from the City of St. Claude, in the province of Jura, France. The main industry of this city in France was the manufacturing of smoking pipes. This ‘Pipe’ was promoted and funded by the St. Claude Chamber of Commerce.”
