"Here amid these picturesque hills our forefathers and foremothers toiled for the sake of goodly heritage. We should do no less."

Daniel Glazier Restoration Process

The fireplace project was a logical next step after installing stainless steel flue liners during the stabilization of the building in 2012. The reconstructed fireplaces will be representative of the period, circa 1815, when the Glazier tavern was built. The beehive oven door was found in Central Massachusetts.  It was cast in Stafford, CT in the 1830's by H.A. Converse, Eagle-Furnace. It's a fantastic addition that highlights our area history.
