The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum has two yellow brick fireplaces, one in the Rosenmeier Research Room and one in the Musser Library.
If you look carefully at the mantel of the library fireplace, you’ll see words inscribed on it that say, “Good friend around these hearth stones speak no evil word of any creature.”
This inscription is also on the fireplace in Charles Weyerhaeuser’s former Little Falls home, now part of Linden Hill.
Fans of the architect Frank Lloyd Wright will recognize this inscription as the one he has on the fireplace in his Oak Park, Illinois, home, which he built for his family in 1890.
