History of the Fireplace Room
The Fireplace Room at Sturtevant Camp was added by the Methodist church after they purchased the camp in 1945. In the earliest days of the camp there was an open-air sitting room situated roughly where the present day tool room is, but that had deteriorated by the time of the 1940’s remodel. This more appropriate location adjacent the dining hall was chosen for indoor gatherings. When construction was finished a group of volunteers carried a piano down the Newcomb trail from the Rincon-Red Box road. Firewood is available and guests are always welcome to make a fire.
