A closeup view of the stones used to build the Welcome Center fireplace. The open joints are typical of Appalachian stonecraft, using a dry mortar technique that only mortars the back half of the joints. Each stone was carefully chosen, chipped and fitted before being mortared into place. Photo taken in November 2002.
