I am living in a house built in 1901. In the living room, instead of a normal wood fireplace, there is a gas heater fireplace insert made by the Ray-Glo company. There is very little information on the tag minus the name of the company, cleaning instructions and the state where it was manufactured. After searching the web, I have come to the conclusion that this heater almost positively was not put in until, at the earliest, 1920. My question is, does anyone have any information on the Ray-Glo company, and more importantly judging by the pictures...do you guys think that there is a normal wood fireplace behind it that has been tiled off? If it helps, directly above my living room in the master bedroom...you can seen in the cracked plaster the outline of the fireplace. If you need any more information, please feel free to ask!
PS-I have gone down to the city records office, all they had on file as far as blueprints and things go, was a bill of sale that simply said "one house built in the usual way" haha. They have no blueprints or anything that might possibly show what was originally there.
