I purchased my 1959 rancher about 3 months ago, I had noticed this pipe coming out of the back of the house early on, but am not really sure what it is or what is would be used for. Does anybody know? I am not referring the the long pipe laying on the ground, but the one that is capped off coming out of the back of the foundation.

I would guess it is a cleanout point.

What's the pipe laying on the ground for? New houses typically have 2-4" diameter pic pipes coming out the side

My house was built in 55 and had a gasline running through wall which used to fuel a natural gas air conditioner compressor/condenser. I think those went out of style not too long after.

I'm thinking maybe there was once an oil tank there for an oil furnace, and thats where the line went through the foundation.

Find where it comes into the house and follow it to the end.

That's what I was thinking too, but figured the FL thing and typical lack of a basement axed that.
