By creating the Merrimack wood burning fireplace insert, we’ve woven together a wood burning heritage with contemporary concerns for the environment that doesn't lose the dignified look of a full fireplace. Adding the warmth of wood fire and the classic beauty of forged cast iron to your most important gathering place, the Merrimack insert turns a simple wood fireplace into a high efficiency centerpiece.
