Fire Place and Hearth Installation

For the last 45 years the old Valley Chapel has shared the building name – Hearthside. The Larkin family who purchased the building from the LDS church in 1974 placed this new name in service. The current owners, who kept the name, have frequently felt over the years that there was nothing in the nature of the facility that necessarily supported the name. It seemed that somewhere in the building there ought to be an impressive fireplace and hearth that gave credibility to the name Hearthside. Eventually a vision unfolded and the seeds of a future project were planted and another item found it’s way to the wish list. By consensus it was agreed that centered on the east wall of the cultural hall between the window on the right and the doors on the left would be the perfect location for the kind of fireplace (gas) with an over sized fire box and elevated hearth worthy of the name Hearthside. This project does not reflect any historically accurate attribute, but…..would be a note worthy addition to an already awesome room! This would also function as a supplementary or back up heat source to the room.
