There's a pipe in my 1920s era home in a second floor bedroom and I'm not sure what it is. Here are some clues:
-Metal pipe filled with dirt.
-I can push it down to be flush with the flooring, though I can't pull it up.
-There are no corresponding pipes on the first floor, basement, or attic.
Any thoughts on what this may be would be appreciated. Thanks! Refinishing the floors soon and I want to remove it.
