How can we remove a chimney safely?

Our home is a little over a hundred years old. The kitchen has an unused and useless protruding chimney. It has been covered up many times during those 100+ years.

Can it be removed, safely, without destroying the structure of the house. I measured the inside as approximately : 9" deep & 17 1/2" wide.

There are 3 original chimneys and 1 added on chimney. (when a utility room was added for a huge, hot-water boiler system in early 70's).
