Smile Load bearing wall??? Can I take this down? W/ PICTURES.

I have a closet between my living room and kitchen. Any reason that you see why I couldn't take this down? Thanks for any help.

What's to the right of the dining room? It depends on what you have to do to replace that header. Have an architect look at it.

Without physically checking...... I'd say that corner is load bearing and holding that beam up over the archway. You could take a small awl or finishing nail and probe the wall to see how much wood is in the corner/
